Family planning programme- 

  • As a result of the family planning programme, growth rate of the population decreased and people started appreciating small family norms. 
  • The family planning programme suffered a setback during the years of national emergency. 
  • Government tried to intensify the effort to bring down growth rate through coercive measures of mass sterilization (tubectomy for females and vasectomy for males). 
  • Massive pressure on lower level government officials to bring people for sterilization in the camps that were organized for this purpose. As a result there was widespread opposition to this programme and the new government elected after emergency abandoned it. National Family planning programme was renamed National family welfare programme.
