A newspaper clipping is doing rounds on social media claiming that there will be no government jobs for people having more than two children.
The Facebook caption read, “इससे कोई फायदा नहीं है, सरकारी नोकरी करने वाले बहुत कम हैं, और अब वेकेंसियां भी कम आ रही हैं।
ऐसे लोगों की नसबंदी करना , वोटरकार्ड से नाम हटाना, मृत्यु के बाद इनकी बॉडी मेडिकल एक्सपेरिमेंट में लेना, कोई भी दवा टीका परीक्षण में इनका उपयोग करना आदि शायद कारगर हों”
(Translation, “There is no benefit from this, there are very few who do government jobs, and now vacancies are also coming less. Sterilizing such people, removing names from voter card, taking their body in medical experiment after death, using them in any drug vaccine test etc may be effective.”)

When we looked at the newspaper clipping, we found additional information that 125 MPs had filed an appeal to the President regarding population control.
With the help of keywords, ‘125 sansad ne banaya jansankhya samadhan sangathan, rashtrapati ne sopa gyapan’ we found a similar news article on ZEE Media, dated August 10, 2018, with claims that BJP along with other MP’s has submitted an appeal regarding population control to President Ram Nath Kovind.
Our investigation took us to another news article in Nav Bharat Times dated December 28, 2018, claiming that MPs who have introduced private bills in the Parliament for population control have demanded strict legislation.
On digging further, we also found a similar article on Times Now News dated August 13, 2018, claiming that 125 MPs demanded strict two-child law for population control.
In conclusion, with the help of the above information, it is clear that the newspaper clipping , claiming that people having more than two children will not be eligible for government jobs, is old and is being falsely circulated as a recent one.
