Dr. Puneet Bedi works at Apollo Hospital, one of India's top medical facilities. He said because of the country's dowry tradition, the parents must often pay large sums of money to marry off their daughters.
Dr. Bedi said women have little trouble finding a physician or technician willing to break the law. Sex-selective abortion has emerged as a low risk, high profit business.
"The law against female feticide is now about 17 years old, but it has never been used. No doctor has really paid for his crime as yet," Bedi said.

As a specialist in fetal medicine, I can tell you that no pregnant woman would suffer if the ultrasound test were banned," says Puneet Bedi, a gynecologist at Apollo Hospitals in New Delhi.

"There is an urgent need to amend the law as in other Western countries abortion is allowed even a day before the delivery in special circumstances like when the couple knows that the child may be born with severe disability," said Puneet Bedi, consultant in foetal medicine at Apollo Hospital.
He added that amendment of the law should be to the extent that it cannot be misused to abort the foetus on the basis of sex.
In India, abortion is illegal. However, it is permitted under law only in special circumstances, including when the woman is raped, when the child suffers from severe disability and failure of contraceptive devices.
"There are special circumstances provided under law when a woman can go in for an abortion - like when a doctor says that having a child would prove a risk to the life of the woman, cause her grave mental or physical injury or that the child may be born with severe disabilities," added Bedi.

Dr Puneet Bedi, a consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology at the Indrapastha Apollo hospital in New Delhi, told the BBC earlier this month that British women were favoured clients at abortion clinics across India because they would pay ten or 20 times more than local women for a termination.
Dr Bedi told BBC Five Live Breakfast: "I have often been approached by people who are willing to send someone to my practice.There are transfers from GPs in England to the gynaecologists in Delhi - that is a fact.It is an organised industry, an organised mafia among doctors."
Dr Bedi added that Indian families did not want girls because they were seen as second class citizens."Every time a girl is born, the whole family goes into mourning.Every time a woman is pregnant, there is a lot of pressure to produce a son," he said.
The consultant said that the average cost for an Indian woman to have an abortion was around £100, whereas British Asian women could pay several thousand pounds.
"I do not known of any doctor who does not have half a dozen colleagues or medical school friends in England already practising - sometimes in areas where there is a large Indian population," he added.
