Manipur Population Commission and Population Policy

Recently the Manipur government has decided that there will be no government benefits and jobs for people having more than four children.

  • This decision clearly focused on population control. For this purpose, Manipur State Population Commission is being established.
  • Similar laws have been implemented in various states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat etc. with the aim of controlling the population.
  • Currently, India accounts for about 18% of the world’s total population, while India has only 2.45% of the global landmass.
  • India will soon overtake China to become the most populous country in the world.

Arguments in favor of population control policy-

  • Population surplus
  • There is pressure on the availability of food, clothing and housing.
  • This exacerbates the problem of unemployment and disguised unemployment.
  • Increases ecological degradation.
  • This puts pressure on the infrastructure.

Arguments against-

  • There will be a decrease in the working age population.
  • Already the total fertility rate (IFR) has declined.
  • The desire to have a son can lead to unsafe abortion and female foeticide.
  • The weaker section is unable to bear the cost of contraception or abortion.
  • It would be like punishing them.
