Is this the right time to adopt a strict 2 Child-Policy in India ? China adopted 1 Child-Policy when their population was approx. 940 millions (94 Crores or 0.94 Billions) in 1979 and now their population is approx. 1340 millions (134 Crores or 1.34 Billions). It officially restricts married, urban couples to having only one child, while allowing exemptions for several cases, including twins, rural couples, ethnic minorities, and parents without any siblings themselves How China benefited by 1 Child-Policy :- Decline in FR (fertility rate):- from approx. 2.63 to 1.61 per woman Speedy economic growth:- reduce in the demand of natural resources, maintaining a steady labour rate, reducing unemployment caused from surplus labour, and reducing the rate of exploitation. Decreased infant mortality rate, Impact on health care:- better health care services. Increased savings rate:- The individual savings rate has increased since the one-child policy was introduced. This has been partially attributed to the policy in two respects. First, the average Chinese household expends fewer resources, both in terms of time and money, on children, which gives many Chinese more money with which to invest. Second, since young Chinese can no longer rely on children to care for them in their old age, there is an impetus to save money for the future. However China's strict 1 Child-Policy is criticised on many grounds yet the benefits are apparent and I hope India will not be criticised on the same grounds. (source: Wiki) Now if we look at India, Indian population for 2012 is approx. 1240 millions (124 Crores or 1.24 Billions) a lot of people are living in poor conditions, we are a Third world country no doubt, and still a welfare state, we are lagging behind China in almost all the areas. My question is is this the right time to adopt a strict 2 Child-Policy for all in India ? Please discuss ! Note: trolls are not welcomed here!
