No Government Benefits to Families With More Than Four Children in Manipur


The Manipur government has limited the number of children in a family to four to take advantage of government jobs or various schemes. Information and Public Relations Minister S. Ranjan said on Friday that the Council of Ministers has decided that any person or family with more than four children will be excluded from jobs and various government schemes.

Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh presided over the cabinet meeting, which took a decision in this regard and approved the setting up of State Population Commission. Ranjan said the state assembly had earlier adopted a private member resolution for setting up of a population commission in Manipur. BJP MLA, Khumukcham Joykisan had moved the resolution on the alleged infiltration of outsiders into the state.

In the resolution, Joykison had talked about changing the population pattern in the state. Citing official figures, he told the House that the hill districts of Manipur had a population growth of 153.3 per cent during 1971-2001. It went up to 250 per cent during 2001-2011. Nagas, Kukis and Jomis and other tribals mostly live in the hilly districts. The Assam government had also issued an order about a year ago. It said that no person with more than two children would be given benefits of government jobs or government schemes.
