Recommendations on Family Planning Allowance in 7th CPC Report
Family Planning Allowance
Family Planning Allowance (FPA) is granted to Central Government employees as an encouragement to adhere to small family norms. The existing rates are as under
There are demands to make it equal to one increment. Representations have also been received requesting that the allowance should be double for those employees who adopt family planning norms after just one child.
Analysis and Recommendations : The Commission recognizes the fact that most of the benefits related to children, viz., Children Education Allowance, Maternity Leave, LTC, etc., are available for two children only. Moreover the level of awareness regarding appropriate family size has also gone up among the government servants. Hence, a separate allowance aimed towards population control is not required now.
Accordingly, it is recommended that Family Planning Allowance should be abolished.

family planning increments should not be abolished. People do family planning with a purpose. People are unhappy with the decision of the Govt. At least, the family who have already adopted family planning should not be deprived of the incentives. I totally unhappy with the decision of the Govt.

The Govt. policy regarding abolish of family planning allowance for Central Govt.Employee indicates that this Govt.will not do any improvement work for the same family & nothing doing ( like reservation in study line and also reservation in appointment of various Govt. Jobs ) for them who under gone family planning.As a result the govt. will must face the bad impact in comming election 2019.
Allowance should be equal to one increment
