原文标题：Chinese think-tank urges end to one-child policy
BEIJING: A government think-tank says China should start phasing out its one-child policy immediately and allow two children for every family by 2015. It remains unclear whether Chinese leaders are ready to take that step.
Some demographers say the timeline put forward by the China Development Research Foundation for phasing out the unpopular one-child limit is bold. Others warn its gradual approach is insufficient to help correct the problems that China's strict birth limits have created.
The report will be made public next month but Chinese state media have been given advance copies. The official Xinhua News Agency said the foundation recommends a two-child policy in some provinces from this year and a nationwide two-child policy by 2015.
The government had no immediate comment on the report on Tuesday.
1 child policy might disturb the sex ratio ..due to the preference of male child over female in asian countries

I think India should adopt 2 child policy strictly.
Concerned Indian (India)
One child policy does bring down population but if continued for a long period of time (2 generation or more), it will have serious effects on the social fabric of any country. Small young population will have to support a large aging population and the human t human relations will take a beating. For me, overpopulated countries should follow one child policy for 20 years, then adopt two child policy which is the best. India too should look at one-child policy seriously for next twenty years and then come back to the present two-child policy.

in india its difficult to implement a new policy n secondly if it does gets implemented its impossible to phase out that policy. best eg being the policy of reservations

India should follow suit and it should have 2 children per family. This will reduce the population pressure to a large extent. Those in Government should follow even 1 child per family. This should be the standard condition of the lettter of appointment.

Vitty (Mumbai) replies to Omprakash
No, I think the Congress gov. will need to think deep before they implement any such policy beyond religion or caste becoz many will ask for exceptions on basis of religion/backwardness/caste/region so as to sure their vote banks .. And ultimately, the gov. will give up this thought ... :)

Rana (Delhi) replies to Derrick Dias
Our country is ruled by Muslims (Rajiv Gandhi is son of Firoz Khan). They are votebank for congress. So forget about implementation of this policy. Today in India, a person having more children will be valued due to his vote numbers.

Communist is to force people and violate their basic Human rights. India should and will never do that. But rather India should focused on educating the common masses on child birth control and the problems that arises due to too many children. We should not imitate china, but make ourselves unique.

This one child policy,although looks good prima facie, but has serious inherent problems which get reflected after a rather long time interval. Good they have done away with it.

For a long term policy one child will be having a adverse effect on the population of the whole country. In one way they have controlled the birth rates. We Indians should implement 1 child policy for atleast next 20 years, But who cares........

No comparision of China vs India.. Area (millions of sq km) - China 9.60 / India 3.29, Population (crore) - China 135 / India 122, Population Density (per sq km) - China 133 / India 336. Now tell me guys, China population compare to the area is far far better than India.

Down with your statistics! A vast stretch of land of Chinese mainland is arid - Tibetan plateau, great deserts, Mongolian Savannah's, Manchuria's extreme climate. Compared to that much of India's land are arable. We have many perennial rivers and potential seasonal rivers. Further due to rapid and indiscriminate industrialisation and consequent urbanisation, China has lost vast stretches of fertile land.
China is afraid-India is playing catch up, however persons per sqm is more in India as we are 1/3rd their size
Varghese John (Mumbai)
We will be happy compete with China in this(the business of giving birth) and am sure will beat them pants down.
Kaml (US) replies to Varghese John
Yes. You have to beat them with "pants down" LoL:)
bcoz dey understood that ww3 ll reduce the population of earth by 50% so they are pre planning for that.. good chincese think tank
Suresh Datta (San Diego)
Its a good move to have 2 child policy.China has a lot of old people. They also prefer having a son over a daughter and this new policy will prevent having such a skewed population.They have a word called ' Hou' which means a happy family that has one girl and a boy

China is lucky they don't have Congress and a certain community living there, otherwise the policy would be to encourage a certain community to breed more for votes...

Politician's are more or less same everywhere. In China, it is reported that the minorities are excluded from the one-child policy.

Kaml (US) replies to ashis
It's true! It's a reverse discrimination. Minorities enjoy many privileges like attending colleges, promotion and having more children.
Does the world need more chinese? They are already taking over the world physically. Walk down any street in Melbourne or Sydney and you will see far more chinese than Australians. Sometimes I think that Australia may become the real 'South Tibet'.
Catherine (Sydney) replies to Ravinder
As much as Australians detest immigration from any 2nd or 3rd world country, given the choice, we would much rather have northeast Asians than east Indians. The Chinese have produced Singapore, Taiwan, Macau and Hong Kong. Furthermore, China before the 18th century was the model for 1st world countries like Japan and Korea. The ilks of east Indians have produced Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
