New Delhi, 18th November 2022: Today (November 18), the Supreme Court turned down several petitions including one that sought actions to enforce a two-child limit to control the population growth, saying the government should look into the matter.


According to the court, this is not a matter in which the court should become involved, citing media reports that India’s population is stabilising despite an increase in births.


A bench of Justices S K Kaul and A S Oka stated that “population is not something that just stops one fine day.”


One of the petitioners, attorney Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, stated the importance of a Law Commission report on the matter.


Upadhyay had brought an appeal against the Delhi High Court’s decision to reject a request for specific measures, including a two-child limit, to control the population growth.


He abandoned his plea after the Supreme Court stated it was not inclined to consider it. Along with rejecting his argument, the bench also rejected some other related petitions, which led the attorneys to withdraw them.
