In a major concern for India, the sex ratio at birth (SRB) saw a decline in 17 out of 21 large states of the country.

Even the state of Gujarat, which is the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saw an alarming dip of 53 points.

The statistics was confirmed in a report released by the Niti Aayog.

Post the release of the report, it was stressed that the sex-selective abortion needs to be prevented by all means.

The other states not doing good on these fronts include Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Karnataka.
