INFANT MORTALITY RATE IN INDIA



As per the Sample Registration System (SRS 2008), the Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) for India has been declining over the years and has declined from 57 per thousand live births in 2006 to 53 per thousand live births in 2008. The State-wise details of IMR with rural-urban break-up for the last 3 years is Annexed.

JSY has increased the proportion of pregnant women delivering in a health facility. Since its inception,Janani Suraksha Yojana has seen a sharp off take, from 7.04 lakh beneficiaries in 2005-06 to 92.29 lakhbeneficiaries in 2009-10. As per the District Level Household Survey (DLHS), Institutional delivery has increased  from 40.9% in DLHS -2 (2002 – 2004) to  47% in DLHS-3(2007 – 2008).

Increase in institutional deliveries has helped in bringing down the infant mortality rate as well as the maternal mortality ratio.

JSY has been implemented throughout the country with special focus on low performing States. In these low performing States, financial incentives to mothers who undergo institutional delivery in public facilities or accredited private facilities, is provided at a higher rate in comparison to other States. In these States, the link worker ASHA is also given enhanced incentive in the rural areas to provide referral transport to the pregnant women.
