  • Description

    JAPAN IS TO BUILD A PLANT FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF CONTRACEPTIVES AT TRIVANDRUM IN INDIA. AN AGREEMENT TO THIS EFFECT WAS SIGNED IN DELHI THIS WEEK TO HELP COUNTER THE NATION'S POPULATION EXPLOSION.

    INSTRUCTION IS ALREADY BEING GIVEN IN CITY CLINICS FOR FAMILY PLANNING, AND POSTERS THROUGHOUT DELHI INVITE MARRIED WOMEN TO ATTEND THEM FOR ADVICE.

    THE FOUNDATION STONE OF THE PLANT AT TRIVANDRUM WILL BE LAID BY THE HEALTH MINISTER DR. SUSHILA NAYAR TOMORROW (SATURDAY). PRODUCTION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN IN 1968 AND WHEN FULLY DEVELOPED WILL MAKE 1500 MILLION CONTRACEPTIVES FOR THE PERIOD OF THE FOURTH ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PLAN ENDING IN 1971.

    THIS MONTH DR NAYAR SAID INDIA'S 90 MILLION YOUNG COUPLES MUST ACCEPT THE IDEA OF HAVING SMALL FAMILIES IF THE COUNTRY'S OVERPOPULATION PROBLEM IS TO BE SOLVED.

    INDIA'S PRESENT POPULATION IS ABOUT 500 MILLION, THE SECOND BIGGEST IN THE WORLD. MORE THAN ONE MILLION WOMEN ARE SAID TO HAVE ACCEPTED THE USE OF CONTRACEPTIVES AND THE HEALTH MINISTRY HOPE THAT FOUR MILLION MORE WILL BE FITTED WITH THEM BY THE MIDDLE OF THIS YEAR.
