Uttar Pradesh Law Commission chairman Aditya Nath Mittal on 20 June said there should be a check on the increasing as it is creating problems in the state.

Mittal said those who were helping and contributing towards control in the state should continue to get the benefit of government resources and facilities. He clarified that population control was different from planning and it was not against any religion nor does it violate human rights.

“We don’t want to give a message in Uttar Pradesh that we are against any particular religion or anyone’s human rights. We just want to see to it that the government resources and facilities are available to those who are helping in and contributing to control,” the Uttar Pradesh Law Commission chairman said.

The law is aimed at incentivising people to help in control in the most populous state in the country, he said.

The Uttar Pradesh Law Commission chairman’s statement comes a day after Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma announced his government’s proposed control policy. However, the Uttar Pradesh government has not issued any official statement about a proposed law along these lines.

On 19 June, Sarma said his government will gradually implement a two-child policy for availing benefits under specific schemes funded by the state.

“Be it a loan waiver or any other government scheme, we will slowly implement a policy for these schemes. The population norms will not be applicable to tea gardens, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, but will be imposed on all others availing benefits from the government in future because the population policy has already started in Assam,” Sarma said at a press conference.

Narendra Modi, in his Independence Day speech in 2019, had advocated smaller families to combat “ explosion” and appreciated people voluntarily keeping the size of their families small, saying they were patriotic in their own right.
