New Delhi, Feb 13: People with more than two children must be ready to face punishment . A bill seeking punishment for such people has been tabled in the Rajya Sabha.
The private member’s Bill was introduced by Shiv Sena MP Anil Desai in the upper house.
The Bill seeks to punish families with more than two children. Punishment proposed is depriving them of social welfare benefits, tax exemptions etc.
The introduction to the Bill states:
“Today, there is also a need to encourage the people to keep small family by offering tax concessions priority in social benefit schemes and school admissions etc. and at the same time discourage them from producing more children by withdrawing tax concessions imposing heavy taxes and by making other punitive provisions for violations.
Therefore, the Bill seeks to amend the Constitution with a view to make a provision by the State to discourage the people from increasing their family and limit it to two children.”
The Opposition is opposing the strongly.
