UP prepares population control bill draft, proposes incentives for those following two-child policy

Uttar Pradesh are taking steps to bring in two-child policies in the states, which will limit government benefits to people with only two children.
The UP State Law Commission has released the first draft of the proposed population control bill. Law Commission Chairman Justice AN Mittal said the bill proposes to bar the violators of the two-child policy from contesting local body elections or applying for government jobs..

Mittal said that if someone does not follow the ‘two-child’ policy aimed at population control, they won’t be eligible for such government schemes. “Their ration cards will be restricted to four units, they will not be able to apply for government jobs and if they are already government employees, then they won’t get a promotion,” said the chairman of the UP law commission.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will on July 11 launch the Uttar Pradesh Population Policy 2021-2030 on the occasion of World Population Day.
