Nov 4, 2015 15:10 IST

The Rajasthan Government on 3 November 2015 decided to relax its two-child policy which was applicable to the state government employees.  

As per the decision, the state government employees, already having two children from previous marriage, will now be allowed to have a third child in case of a remarriage. Besides, twins or triplets in such remarriages will be counted as one unit.

The decision was taken at the cabinet meeting presided by state Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.

About state’s two-child policy

Rajasthan was the first state in the country to implement the two-child norm in 1992. After 1994, the government barred people with more than two children to contest panchayat and municipal elections.

The policy was extended to government employees with a cut-off date of June 2002.

In 2001, the Rajasthan Government had issued a notification that a candidate having more than two children is not eligible for government recruitment. The notification also mentioned that if an employee’s third child is born after 1 June 2002, he/she will not be given promotion for five years.
