Dakshina Kannada, Yadgir, Haveri, and Gadag districts from Karnataka have been selected for the Central government's Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao Yojana.

M L Vaishali, the additional deputy commissioner, Dakshina Kannada district, chaired a high-level meeting on children's rights on Saturday and said: "The four districts have been selected based on a severe gap in gender ratio." 

"As per 2001 census, there were 1,022 women for every 1,000 men in Dakshina Kannada district. The census in 2011 indicates a dip in the number of women for every 1,000 men, besides the number of girls aged six years and below, she said.

"Special task force has been formed for the project which will implement special programmes for the implementation of women rights," she said.
