Adoption would primarily mean bearing the cost of the girl child's education at least till graduation.
"We are taking help of mahila arogya samitis (MAS) constituted in all slum areas of the city and other parts of the state to find out girls who have done well in academics," Neeraj K Pawan, member secretary, health department's Save Girl Child cell.
He said that recently, some doctors had showed their interest in adopting female kids. Health minister Rajendra Rathore would adopt a girl child too. "We are preparing a database of such girls who can be adopted and are willing to study. The database will help people like doctors, chartered accountants, businessmen, politicians, bureaucrats and other people willing to adopt girl child," Pawan said.
He said that after adoption, the Save Girl Child cell will start documentation of every adoption for its monitoring.
"We will keep a record of the person who has adopted a girl child and also of the girl like her age, in which class she is studying etc. It will be done to monitor the progress of girl child's studies. We will issue certificates to honour people who would adopt girls," Pawan said.
A format for documentation of adoptions has also been prepared by the health department. The officials have started sending it to doctors and other persons who have already adopted a girl child.
