New Population Policy in Assam | असम में लागू हुई देश की पहली पॉप्युलेशन कंट्रोल पॉलिसी

No Government jobs for those with more than two children in Assam

Population Policy in Assam

Historical Population Policy in Assam State by BJP led Sarbananda Sonowal government. Assam has become the first state to implement such Population policy in India.

A communique from the Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal's public relations cell stated that those having more than two children will not be considered for government jobs with effect from January 1, 2021 as per the small family norm.

Two years after the 126-member Assam Assembly adopted a population policy, the State Cabinet on 21 October 2019 decided to make government jobs out of bounds for people with more than two children.

The policy will come into effect from January 1, 2021.

The State Assembly had in September 2017 passed the ‘Population and Women Empowerment Policy of Assam’ seeking to encourage small family. Apart from specifying that candidates with two children only would be eligible for government jobs, the policy warranted that existing government employees should strictly follow the two-child norm.

“Implementing the population policy was necessary, given the pressure on land and resources in Assam. Providing land to the landless was also one of our commitments,” a Minister said after the Cabinet meeting.

Effect of this Population policy

This policy will definitely curb the speed of increasing population in state. Other state may also soon adopt this Population policy.
