Studying Different Aspects of Population Policy

Avantika Rastogi | Pravin Kumar Singh

Abstract: This paper attempts to investigate contemporary discourse in policy development to restrict population growth in relation to scientific findings available in the public domain. Various states in our country have recently attempted to implement policies and mechanisms to translate an uninformed concept of population growth control through entitlement, incentivization and dis-incentivization, which are antithetical to many guaranteed fundamental rights under the Constitution of India. State action can have an impact on population growth and decline. However, these measures must improve people's lives by improving their access to basic liberties and safeguards. Expanding those decisions and choices, particularly those related to sexual and reproductive health and rights, is the best method to address population dynamics, which are the sum of individual choices and opportunities. In addition, the paper examines UNFPA's decadal policies and instances through numerous assistance programs, China's coercive one-child policy, and India's population status and trend, which includes the 2011 Census and Population estimation in contrast to the NFHS-5 report.
