China Child Policy: In a major policy change, the government of China today allowed its citizen to have upto three children. Earlier, in 2016, the couples were allowed to have upto two children, a change that had come after almost 30 years of country’s highly notorious 1-child policy. China’s strict one-child policy, that turned out to be a deterrent in controlling the county’s population boom, was imposed in the year 1979. Recently, there were reports that China’s population may have gone down significantly, and its regional rival India may have surpassed it in terms of population.
A few reports also claimed that due to 1-child policy, the China’s Army is finding it difficult to find soldiers, and the country may relax the policy in view of a potential crisis.
