To buy Echocardiography machine even without abdominal probe. I am supposed to produce the certificate from radiologist stating that I am trained to do ultrasonography, thus making myself liable to be covered under PNDT act. Unless I produce such a certificate DHO will not allow me to buy Echocardiography machine.
This is very unfair, forcing cardiologist, whose area of focus no way related to sex determination.
A few days back I read that bureaucrats are trying to extend their tentacles to cover even ophthalmologist, just because they also use ultrasonic waves for doing eye scan. Such an attitude is very bad. This is just an exploitation, not really bothered to prevent sex determination of fetus.
Maybe in future even to have a pet which can hear ultrasonic waves we may need to register it in PNDT and just imagine registers they expect to maintain. which could keep the record of its natural calls and etc? So doctors, be careful if you have a pet, better get rid of it right now or else fight against this draconian law.
In India determination, sex of the fetus is crime To prevent this our governments have introduced PNDT. but this has done no good to our community, in fact, it has just become a weapon to torcher doctors.
