    From the above table these conclusions can be drawn;

    1. At present, the lowest sex ratio in India is in Haryana, where sex ratio is only 879 whereas the highest sex ratio is in Kerala (1084).

    2.  If we talk about the sex ratio in the union territories; Puducherry has highest sex ratio of 1037 while Daman and Diu has lowest sex ratio (618) among all the union territories of India.

    3. Position of the bottom five is occupied by the five Union Territories of India i.e. Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Delhi, Chandigarh, Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu.

    4. Puducherry and Lakshadweep are the only two union territories which have sex ratio of more than 900 females per thousand males.

    The falling sex ratio of Indian states is a cause of concern for the policy makers of the country. The government of India is trying to fill up this gap as soon as possible. That is the reason that the Indian government has dispersed the coverage of the “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” plan in all districts of the country. We are hopeful that very soon the positive results of this plan will be in front of everyone.
