Summary: The status of women is a vital indicator of the development of any society. Developed societies do not discriminate the citizens based on the gender but the case is opposite in the less developed societies. In India, gender discrimination is a major problem. People prefer male child and indulge in female feticide and infanticide. The present paper highlights some facts related to gender ratio in our country. The paper takes thirty-two Indian states and Union Territories (UTs) to study the relationship between per-capita income and gender ratio. Surprisingly, the states and UTs with high per-capita income have lower gender ratio than the national average and vice-versa. The paper also tries to find out reasons for the negative relation. The five-dimensional approach has been suggested to tackle the problem and emphasis has been given that all the stakeholders should decide their roles and should work together to overcome the social evil.

Keywords: Gender Ratio, Social, Per-Capita Income, Discrimination, Female Child.
