BEIJING: China, the world's most populous country which once strictly followed the one-child norm, is now considering allowing a second child for all couples.
China could further relax its one-child policy to allow all couples across the country to have a second child, reported Global Times.
China currently has a population of 1.3 billion. India is close behind with a population of 1.2 billion.
In China, 29 provinces and municipalities have relaxed the one-child policy to allow couples to have a second baby if either parent is from a single-child family.
Online polls show that a majority of Chinese support the second-child policy, but analysts say they are concerned that young couples are showing less interest in having more children.
Perhaps China is getting concerned that before they get rich as a country, they will get old!!
Ageing China is planning some rescue...
China should just allow Indians to immigrate to China
But they should learn to do hard work, not like in India with chal ta hai attitude !
Chinese have a very similar attitude. The only thing is that Indians and Chinese look different.
please allow 2 Child policy in India
seems China will remain number 1 in population tally.
India is one-third in size as China, but has three times as much area under crop cultivation as China has.
If the population census in India taken thoroughly... definitely India will be in First place pushing China behind....

The standard of living in China has improved a lot in recent years and it is becoming 'unaffordable' to have more than one child. Actually, it is not one child policy they are following, but it is one birth policy. This policy has stabilized the population growth
