The Supreme Court on Wed­nes­day di­rected the min­istry of health and fam­ily wel­fare to setup a “nodal agency” to en­sure that search en­gines do not flash com­mer­cial ad­ver­tise­ments, in­clud­ing re­search ma­te­rial, on in­ter­net re­lated to sex de­ter­mi­na­tion tests, say­ing in sev­eral places boys were un­able to marry due to a de­cline in sex ra­tio. As per the or­der, the nodal agency can be alerted by any per­son on such in­for­ma­tion avail­able on the in­ter­net.
