The Uttar Pradesh State Law Commission released the first draft of the proposed control bill on Friday. The draft bill has provisions to debar people who have more than two children from the benefits of government schemes and perks to those who follow the two-child policy.

Uttar Pradesh State Law Commission Chairman Justice AN Mittal said that the bill proposed to bar the violators of the two-child policy from contesting local body elections or applying for government jobs. The bill also limits ration card units to four.

Government employees following the two-child policy will be eligible for incentives like two additional increments during the entire service, subsidised purchase of plot or house, rebate on utility charges and 3% increase in Employee Provident Fund (EPF) under the National Pension Scheme. Those with a single child will get four additional increments, free healthcare and education for their child till the age of 20.

For those who are not in government service but follow the two-child policy, the bill proposes to give them rebates on water and electricity bills, house tax, home loans. The bill also promotes vasectomy and sterilisation, Mittal said.

The Uttar Pradesh State Law Commission chairman said the draft bill had been uploaded on the UP law commission’s official and seeks suggestions from the public. The last date for submission of suggestions is 19 July.

Mittal said there would be no relaxation in cases of polygamy and polyandry. “Those who are questioning this must know that the government can’t invest money of taxpayers on them with more than two children,” Mittal said.

The draft bill was released two days before the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government is set to announce a new policy for 2021-2030. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will be releasing the policy on Sunday.

Uttar Pradesh following Assam line

Last month, Assam Chief Minister announced that his government would 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, SC, ST communities, but will be imposed on all others availing benefits from the government in future because the policy has already started in Assam,” Chief Minister Sarma had said.
