Further incentivizing population control, the bill proposes additional benefits for couples who opt for one child. The child would get free medical facilities and free insurance coverage until the age of 20.
Government employees opting for a single child would be eligible for additional increments in their service period and would get 12 months maternity/paternity leave with full pay.
And those government employees in contravention of the two-child norm may face dismissal from the service.
