China to limit family size for up to 30 years despite concerns
BEIJING: China will stick to family planning restrictions for up to 30 years, a senior Chinese official said on Monday, rejecting concern that limits on the number of children had shrunk the pool of workers needed to support an aging population.
Last year, the ruling Chinese Communist Party announced it would relax its long-standing and controversial “one-child policy”, allowing all couples to have two children.

Isn’t having lesser younger generation a lesser evil than a huge population?
When you have less number of young Chinese then there will be people from other countries who can take their place like we are seeing in the European countries. However a big increase in world population is going to be bad for everyone.
The media is crazy criticizing the great imitative fro china. Look at Dharavi , or look at Bangladesh as a whole. In Banglaore the lakes froth because of the massive pollution happens, because of population explosion. India should start a no child policy with some incentive to avoid a major disaster. Any reasonable good city start a “IT park” , from next day people from all the states flood in, destroy every corner of it and call it city is growing.

Such limit should be forcefully implemented in India
In India, atleast 2-child policy can be easily implemented and should be. With shrinking farmlands, expanding cities, withdrawing ground water level, lesser employment…….our country’s resources are at huge strain.
It is the main task of the individual couples to limit the family size. It is better to do so in the interest of their own life
this was what planned by the western countries that china and india are most populated countries their population to be controlled so that after some years their population face the hard ship that china is today forced to change its policy hope india does not follow china and west in population policy
China will now set up old age homes near the Indo-Tibetan border to facilitate PLA intrusion…
In 10 years china will be forced to import manpower even for routine jobs. People dont understand the weight or mass of the earth remains constant irrespective of all population
