Yes, India should have a one-child policy. Because there is a huge population explosion in India. India stands 2nd place in population after china. Due to this, there is a demand for every resource such as food, land, water, etc. And the population explosion is also the main reason for unemployment in our country. If the population is less then the demand for the jobs will be less and everyone will get a job. But due to more population in our country, millions of people are not even able to eat bread.

If the one-child policy is implemented, the population will be under control and we can avoid many problems in the coming years. But there may be a fall in the youth population in our country.

Population control is a big concern for a country like India which is stifled under the rapidly expanding number of people. But I don't think implementing a one child policy will be the exact solution to this complication. Sachin Tendulkar was the sixth child of his parents. Imagine that if we had a one child policy, India would have lost her God of cricket. So each and every human resource in this Earth is precious. Neither of us are destined to deliberately hold their breathe. Rising population can be dealt with the sustainable use of resources. I strongly believe in the strength of our earth. Rather than colonising the space, we should take effort to make this planet hospitable to many more species that can flourish endlessly.

In my opinion, a one-child policy is good because the population will control through this when population will decrease and the country will make pollution-free because cars and vehicles are also reduced. Many facilities are available for everyone.

Hello everyone,

One child policy should not be implemented because if a couple can afford 2 children and they may have a chance of adopting orphans. Instead of one-child policy govt should implement a policy of adopting orphans by people who can afford for their children.

Yes, India need one child policy, because India is 7th largest country and 2nd populated country so population density is so high here no place for other animals also.

All developed countries are developed because of WW1 and WW2 they increase their knowledge, learn to optimize resources and know the meaning of population control.

In India 130cr people but all are not working for country lots of is just doing nothing so we can say more young people means more growth. Even govt can not supply food, hospital, education to 130cr people.

We need to come closer to population density as developed country.

No India should not go for one-child policy because firstly we have to see the country that already has this policy. And the consequences of this policy can be the same in India. Like gender Imbalance because we always give first preference to male (baby boy) and just because of that most of the family abort their baby girl child. So it will surely affect the gender rate in India.

No. If the child is single there is a chance of feeling loneliness when parents are busy. Having siblings teaches values of relationship, sharing, helping each other, understanding people, supporting family members, feeling responsibility. So having at least one sibling is a must. In the present generation, people are very busy that they don't have time to spend time with family so the proper relation between each other is decreasing. So having a sibling teaches the value of a relationship which is very very important for life.

As the point of view towards India's population the one child policy should apply. The unemployment & Pollution is because of the population in India. If we think that due to one child policy there will not have siblings this is also true but according to my opinion it's more important to control the population now a days so it should apply.

In my opinion, we can adopt a one-child policy to control our population. We can implement it for some years to reduce our population growth rate because our population is growing at a very fast rate. In some years, we will leave China behind to become the most populated country in the world. We can think about it.

One child policy can play an important role to control our population. One another reason for adopting this policy is India has the largest youth population in the world and we will remain the same for some more years. So it is possible to adopt it.

Deeksha Agrawal said: (Aug 11, 2019)  
I don't think that one-child policy should be implemented as we are aware of many issues like suicides and all which are mainly taking place due to depression. Which is directly affected by isolation. So if one has someone with him or her to share his or her problems he/she can do with ease as he will be of our age group. I accept that friends can be helping but someone who is available with you every time is your sibling.

But the fact of the population can not be ignored so having more than two children can contribute in a bad way to our nation. So in my point of view, A law should not be made but people should go with two children policy on their own as it will not affect the individual as well as the nation.

In my point of view, India should not have a one Child policy because it should be dependent on the couples of their interest. Who can afford money can have more than one child and who are from poor background they can only afford one child. So it depends on the individual or the couple. We can't decide the law.

But we have to think of the population also. As India occupies the second position in terms of population. So, not that we are having money we can have 5 children's. Just think about it and having 2 children in a family is good.

In my point of view, It should be applied, because only the population increment can't be the solution of India's growth. In India, According to Quora "Over 25 lakh, Indians die of hunger every year. ". Is it the best way to Live and develop our country?

I think rather than more children, it should be better resource availability for them so that they can use them and become able to contribute their idea's, knowledge etc in the development of our nation.

Hello guys,

In my point of view, "should India have one child policy" is totally wrong thinking because we know that the major development of the country is totally dependent on youngsters, it is no doubt that the development of the country also depends on unskilled people, half skilled human etc but if we reduce the birth rate then the number of youngsters also decreases and finally, we conclude that the development rate in any sector also decreases and it harms our economy.

In my view, one child policy is quite interesting but it will be a dramatic policy to the grannies of India. Cuz never ever two child s are not enough to them. But yeah one-child policy is not to be employed cuz it might lead to many dangerous issues. Well, the population is always high and intelligence too. But for sharing and bonding two will be quite good and enough watever the sex maybe. The thing one should eradicate is blind brains of those fathers who are more obsessed o getting baby boys who never care for wife n her problems. One needs to take stand against this. Then the population might control instead of one child policy.

Hello, I am Rachel,

I would like to share my views on the one-child policy.

Well, India is a large country through population wise. And now India has become the second most populated country. In India resources are limited and the population is increasing day by day. But in my views, India should not have a one-child policy because every child should have a sibling so that they can share their emotions, problems and all the fights. As we Indians are very emotional it is not acceptable in India to have one child. We want all relations we want have enough resources if they use them wisely then there is no need to have one child.

Hello friends,

Myself Suriyabalaji,

In my point of view, One child policy is not the best solution to reduce India's population. We all know that India is the second most populous country in the world, but according to the world population review, India fertility rate ranks at number 94.

So, in my opinion, some other steps can be taken to reduce the population because One child policy may bring so many negative effects such as selective sex abortions, gender imbalance etc.

Topic-Should India have a one child policy.

I think, We should follow one child policy in India not for all time only as long as we do not maintain our population. Because we know that in field of population India have second rank we also know that for development of any country population is major factor. Because if population of any country is more then unemployment increases in that country, not only in case of employment also more population causes pollution. In field of pollution India always increases day by day. But in India only politics is run, so no politician can do this type of work, because they only wants to win in some way, so in India this type of rules not come at any time and actually here not only politician is wrong our civilian also not wants this type of rules. So, please make unity us, then such types of rules can done.

Hello guys,

Basically, our country is the 7th lagrgest country in the world by land, but by population, we are the second largest country. So my point is that if the top 6 countries can manage their resources by lack of manpower than we can also manage our resources, army, manufacturing, medical and all those services. With digitization, plenty of posts for employees might be closed, and Indian growth of population might be in 2025 generate more problem like food, water and shelter availability, so I suggest for a sack of good and healthy life of our people we should pass this law of one child.

Now, coming to the topic "should India have a one-child policy".
I don't think this policy should apply in India.
Because our constitution doesn't implement this type of forcible ideas.
Because this is the personal thought and nation duty for any individual.
So if we wanna implement this rule or policy the nation should also support us.

Hello friends,

Today our topic is regarding one child policy; as we know our neighbouring country China is currently facing with the problem lower birth rate it was due to implementation of one child policy in the year 1980. This policy was ended in the year 2013 because if there are no plenty of young star the economic growth will be affected. They are the back bones for country to lead sectors like defence, medical, agricultural. Every one is saying that India is second highest populated country, hence we have to follow the one child policy. As per above conclusion we have to face the problem like china in future. So it is better to implement two child policy. So that we can overcome all these problems. Every family should have two child because one child can't get assistance when needed.

Rather than following one child policy. I suggest India to follow not more than two child policy, because an Indian is a seventh largest country and second largest country in terms of area and population respectively. India requires huge manpower in various fields like defence, medical and politics etc.

Also, a lonely child doesn't know the values and love of siblings. Indian parents also depend on children after sixties.

In order two balance all the things there should be a policy that is not more than two policy.

In India, we believe Unity in Diversity. Now we need to understand why this topic becomes a concern for nation. India has its own land mass, water, & other resources no country can prosper if there is overburden on resources India is going to become water scarcity nation in the year 2025, we have fixed landmass, fixed Resources for our necessities, now comes Per Capita Income when we talk about the Universal Income which indirectly creates the burden on GDP So for the sustainable development we need to sustain the resources to prosper and One child policy can become a trending change to solve the population unemployment crisis.

Hello everyone.

Growing population is really a concerning matter for our country.

Educated people do understand the growing risk of population increase, but the illiterate or people who don't understand why birth control is necessary should be taught about its importance.

Awareness camps shall be arranged and creative ways shall be put together to attract people to attend camps. Rather than imposing a one-child or two-child policy the government as well as the citizens shall make other people aware about the need to use birth control measures.

Because having 1, 2 or more child, this decision depends upon the person. The interference of government in this matter would lead to a conflict between citizens and the government.

We all should take an initiative to make others aware about this rather than pin-pointing the government or the people around you.

Yes, India should impose this law as soon as possible. Nowadays The world's foremost problem is population. Especially, Its been a headache for India always. China has been trying repeatedly to control the population. But India has no effort since independence. Not only citizens of India but also the government has never been taken it as a serious matter.

So for the future, we should take steps towards the population. All citizens must follow the one-child policy before waiting the government will install this policy. In communal countries, It is easy to initiate something but its far opposite in democracies like India. After the government's decision People has to respect the decision's of govt and obey. The Government should make strict laws and policies upon this matter to promulgate over citizens, the world's most defiant public ever in a democratic country.

It will help the government to manage the shelter, food, mobility, pollution, and to develop education, industry, agriculture and external imports and exports.

If we follow on child policy, we can not say that he or she will fullfill the nation requirement. Nation would not get the people for doing the nation work.

In my point of view, should India have one child policy because this is a time of inflation if you wanna give better knowledge, better things then you should have money if you have only one child you can provide him/her all the facilities.

Nowadays the population is a big problem cause of population Government is unable to provide all facilities and employment.

If you wanna say that they don't have siblings they who loved him who will play with him/her then I wanna say that if parents have only one child then they can love him/her a lot and play with him even if the child can play with their cousin.

Hello everyone,

India should follow the two child policy. Nowadays parents are busy at their works and they don't give proper time to their child if one child is there so he will go into depredation. Two children play with together and understand the world with brother and sister. In India parents, after 60 years old they depend on their child if the child dies in the accident then parents are not suffering further life.

I think the government should find other alternative solution, therefore, population are reducing.

Today's discussion topic is should India have one child policy? yeah defiantly India have to adopt one child policy because of the reason increasing the population and some parents just gave birth to him/her for forcing by their family and in-laws this is a disgusting thing I saw because of your family your relatives they want you to have more than one baby but they can't say scroll on point how they earn many for their child after he/she grew up. And one most point is the mentality of Indians is that don't give birth to the girl child. The conclusion on my side is one child policy has to be adopted otherwise any of girl child thrown on the road side is not only for girl time is flying child ll be a boy also.

Akansha said: (Oct 23, 2018)  
Rather than a one-child policy, India should go for not more than two child policy.

I strongly agree with the fact that increased population causes many problems but having only one child will also create some small issues. A child will not have any siblings. He/she will be unaware of the love and bonding that a sibling shares. In childhood, if jis/her parents are busy in some work and they leave the children home, he will feel very lonely, he will not have anyone to play with him/her.

In fact, in 2014 a law has been passed in some states for not having more than two children.

Having children is a family personal matter and if the government is imposing any policy then the family may also not feel good about it for one child policy but they can consider the two child policy.

Apart from this policy, proper education should be given to family especially women of the house for proper family planning. So that the population can be controlled in an affected manner.

It is predicted that by 2025 India will cross the population of China which is a matter of serious concern and something needs to be done.

So, two child policy can be accepted by families rather than one child policy.

Thank you.

Have a great day ahead.

Good morning everyone.

I think India should follow the one-child policy. Because the population of India increasing rapidly day to day and this will impact on the countries economy. Because the largest population government are not able to provide all the facilities to every citizen of the country. The largest population arises the different problems.

1. Lack of education system.
2. Unemployment.

India is a traditional country so it will not be easy to restrict to one child, I will include other factor like education level, tradition, women empowerment etc.

There are many disadvantages of this policy like lack of siblings emotions because parents are not enough free to spent quality time with their children.

Payal said: (Sep 6, 2018)  
Yes. For the time being, this policy can be adopted. It has been predicted that India will overtake China by 2050 in terms of population. One child policy is needed mainly when the nation is unable to meet the consumption, employment needs of its people. India is facing the same problem. Currently, youths constitute a major part of population. This is the reason that for the time being this policy can be adopted. Though Indian economy is growing very fast but still unemployment is prevalent. But there can be a hurdle for implementation of this policy- the mindsets of people. The decision of having kids completely depends on the family itself. So it will be a kind of interference by government which might not be welcomed.

China is well known for having instituted a one-child policy back in 1979. While the policy was effective in stemming population growth, critics argue that the side effects of the policy have created many societal problems in China today.

In a country like India, population planning can only be achieved by formulating and implementing a strong policy, particularly among less educated women. Women should be encouraged so that they can learn about family planning. Obviously, women\'s empowerment has to be the central theme in population planning policies.

Another fact is that, Kerala and Tamil Nadu, achieved declines of fertility without a one-child policy. These two states maintained healthy sex ratio without one child policy.

One child policy cannot be implemented in India in the same way as in China, education and persuasion methods are appropriate and necessary.

Therefore, education about family planning is necessary to control population growth. No need to implement one child policy.

In 2014, 12 Indian states have passed laws to restrict Indian citizens from having no more than two children.
