Chandigarh: Oct 19, 2010
Haryana may be basking in the golden glow of women medal winners at the Commonwealth Games but the average Haryanvi continues to disfavour the girl child, posting the worst gender skew in five years. The sex ratio in Haryana has skidded to its lowest of 834 girls for 1,000 boys in the age group of 0-6 years in the past five years. In 2006, it was 857 girls for 1,000 boys as per information accessed by TOI under RTI. The latest figures have been compiled through civil registration system (CRS), up to August 2010.
