The present work contains important research write-ups contributed by eminent researchers relating to the problem of girl child in our country. In these papers topics ranging from problems of girl child, girl prostitution, decline in sex ratio, human resource development, disparity in education and health of girl child, child labour, to their denial of human rights have been analysed at length. Based on both secondary and primary sources of data collected from field studies and observations, this work portrays the evaluation and analysis of girl child and their multi-dimensional problems and their implications in the economy. It is hoped that the book will be immensely useful in guiding the policy makers, planners, researchers and demographers in formulating policy paradigms in India.
