Vrinda Lakshamanan, Bharatha Mata School of Legal Studies, Choondi


Recently on the occasion of World population day, the Uttar Pradesh government revealed its new POPULATION (CONTROL, STABILIZATION & WELFARE) BILL2021-30. As we all know Uttar Pradesh is the largest state in India in terms of population. From the present rate of 2.7, the programme seeks to reduce the overall fertility rate among women to 2.1 by 2026 and 1.9 by 2030. To throw light on the legislative competency of the bill, population control and family planning comes under the entry 20A of the concurrent list1, in which both the central government and state government can frame laws. More than that, the population issues are becoming a threat to the growth of the state hence seeks special attention for this matter. This is a critical analysis of the current population policy of UP.
