10 April 2017 Current Affairs: The Assam government has announced a draft population policy.

It suggested denial of government jobs to people with more than two children.

The policy also suggested making education up to university level free for all girls in the state.

The proposal also prevents people with a history of child marriage from entering government service. The proposed population policy will also push for increasing the legal age of marriage from 18 years for girls and 21 years for boys. The policy will also seek stringent laws to prevent violence and sexual abuse of women.

Assam will become the second state in the country after Rajasthan to have rules separate from the national population policy of 2000.
