What is possible solution for Population Control in India?
Ever rising Indian population is one of the major reasons of so many problems in India, of which poverty being the most significant.
To control this Indian Govt. proposed a bi to solve it in 2019.
"The Population Control Bill, 2019 (or, Population Regulation Bill, 2019) is a proposed bill introduced in the Rajya Sabha in July 2019 by Rakesh Sinha. The purpose of the bill is to control the population growth of India. According to the World Population Prospects 2019 report by the United Nations, the population of India is set to overtake that of China within a decade. The proposed bill was signed by 125 Members of Parliament (MP) and is yet to become an act of law."
What according to you can be Population control mechanism in India?
Child base incentive do seem more viable
Strict rules always comes with punishment and punishment brings resentment, which is a path towards unrest. Hence, strict child 1 or 2 child policies will not be moral in a democratic republic like ours. Incentives feel like a much better way to incite the need to give this issue a thought by the general public. Including the incentives in education and ration, limiting the DA and other family based incentives people get in jobs and in govt positions is also a thought provoking way to make people aware of the issue.
Seems more realistic
I am more in favour of "number of children based Incentives". That works, with sense of not any forceful impositions, but an optional benefit.
Also, India isn't (and shouldn't be) a Tyranny like China to impose super strict policies like "One Child Policy".
Many countries are already doing that in opposite sense. Like after WW2, Germany was left with so less population. It needed people to grow economy again. So they have "Number of Children based incentives". They need people so they give extra money for Second and Third child in family. We can totally use it in opposite way like "Subsidy in education, petrol, rations if you have only upto 2 children"
India has a population of 130 crore and this is a serious threat to the country which is developing, and in this developing nation consumption of resources is high. If population is not regulated in a strict manner then 25 years from now there would be lack of resources for basic needs too, govt. of India must bring this bill to the house as soon as possible otherwise many problem will surely pop up like unemployment, low availiblity of health care, proverty, lack of security and decline in per capita income.
Only limiting certain allowances will help out, stricter punishment or not allowing certain privileges for the third child or more must be considered. This policy must be continued for certain period of time as this will help control the population to great extend. In order to be a developed nation the resources must be utilized maximum in developing the nation.
