- Elderly countries are reluctant to marry in large numbers due to economic crisis in Japan
- Japan has a population of about 1268 million, it is the oldest country in the world by population.
In Japan, the government has decided to give an incentive of up to six lakh yen, or about 4.25 lakh rupees, to couples wanting to settle down. This is being done so that people get married soon and have children and the fast falling birth rate in the country can be controlled. For this, the government is going to start a massive reward program from April.
Japan has a population of about 1268 million
Historically the lowest 8 lakh 65 thousand children were born in Japan last year. The death toll was 5 lakh 12 thousand more than the birth. This is also the biggest difference between birth and death. The government expects the birth rate to be 1.8% this year, slightly higher than last year's 1.42%. Japan has a population of about 1268 million. Japan is the oldest country in the world by population.
It also has the highest number of people over 100 years of age. According to the Lancet report, if the birth rate remains the same, by 2040 the population of the elderly will be more than 35%. To bridge this gap, the government has started this campaign on a large scale.
The government has put some conditions for joining the scheme
The government has put certain conditions for joining the scheme. For example, the couple's age should not be more than 40 years and the total earning of both should not exceed Rs 38 lakh. Similarly, the total income of couples whose age is below 35 years should not exceed Rs 33 lakh. They will be given assistance of Rs 2.11 lakh.
Youth are not getting married due to lack of money
The National Institute of Population and Social Security Research conducted a survey in 2015. It revealed that around 30% of unmarried boys and 18% of unmarried girls in the age group of 25-34 attributed lack of funds to the decision not to marry.
Increase in birth rate in other countries gets reward
Italy: Italy is the second country where the fast birth rate is falling. Here, every couple gets 70 thousand rupees from the government on having a child.
Estancia: In the European country Estonia, to increase the birth rate, the job worker is given leave with full salary for one and a half years. Also, a family with three children gets a bonus of 300 euros, or about 25 thousand rupees every month.
Iran: Here the vasectomy of men is banned. Here, contraceptive medicines are given only to women who are required to take this medicine due to health reasons. Additional ration is given to the family producing more children.
