Beijing. China is number one in the whole world in terms of population, but the decreasing birth rate is becoming a cause of concern for it. The concern was that after a time its population would get old and then incidents would start. China has sensed these situations and due to this it is insisting on giving birth to children. For this, China is offering more than Rs 2 lakh to the parents for having a child. Here different economic offers are being given for the first, second and third child.
Actually, China had announced ‘One Child Policy’ to stop its rapidly growing population. It was implemented very strictly. Due to this, the population of China has been controlled, but the number of old people is also becoming a cause of concern for it. To reduce this side effect, cash is being offered to 17.7 million people in Shenzhen city to increase their families. Under the scheme, about 90 thousand rupees will be given to the parents for the birth of the first child. In case of second and third child, they are offered to be given an additional Rs 1.30 lakh and Rs 2.30 lakh respectively.
The Chinese government is ready to bear the expenses of the children.
In many parts of China, people are being encouraged to have more children. To meet the expenses of the children, the Chinese government is offering them up to Rs 2.30 lakh. According to the report of China’s official newspaper Global Times, money will continue to be received till every child is 3 years old.
Official figures show the number of children born in the southern city in 2021 was 201,300, down more than 25 per cent from 2017. Local authorities in the eastern city of Jinan also plan to offer a monthly payment of 7,000 rupees for every second and third child born this year.
