No government jobs for Assamese people with more than two kids, the state declares
A communique from the Chief Minister
In September 2017, the Assam Assembly had passed the 'Population and Women Empowerment Policy of Assam' that specified that job candidates with two children only would be eligible for government employment and the existing government staff were to strictly follow the two children family norm.
"New Land Policy was adopted. Three bighas of land will be given to landless indigenous people. Landless people will be offered half a bigha to construct their houses. These cannot be sold for 15 years," the CMO statement said.
The Cabinet meeting also decided to increase the bus fares in the state by 25 per cent, it added. TR RHL
