 Doctors may Lose Their License If They Conduct Sex Selection Tests

In a strict move to curb the practice of sex selection tests, Doctors caught conducting  the same  will forfeit their  Medical Council of India license to practice.   

The Union Health Ministry may soon direct State MCI boards to name the doctors who have been convicted earlier and ensure that their license to practice is cancelled permanently.


A directive has also been issued to keep a  vigil on the number of ultrasound machines in districts  including details of ultrasound clinics/imaging centres.

It is now mandatory to fill Form F , which will soon be available online. The radiologist in the ultrasound clinics will need to fill up Form F before conducting ultrasound on the pregnant woman with details of the patient and doctor as well as the reason for conducting sonography.
