The 2011 census reveals that Gujarat has managed to halt the speedy decline in child sex ratio in the previous decade, but it still has a long way to go as the current ratio is below the national average. The declining child sex ratio was a challenge for the State so joint actions of Government with the civil society was taken up in a campaign mode `beti Vadhaao andolan'. Government roped in community leaders, religious leaders, women's groups and NGOs for this.
