JAIPUR : The Maheshwari community has announced that it will offer an FD of Rs 50,000 to a couple who have a third child. This decision was taken due to fear of its declining population. This facility was earlier provided only when the third child was a daughter, however, now it has been extended to any child irrespective of gender.
This decision has also been taken to motivate people to elevate the policy of three children in society. During the general meeting of Seva Sadan, held in Rajasthan’s Pushkar, several decisions were taken in this regard.
In the meeting held in Pushkar, it was discussed that there were no boys and girls left in the community to get married which is why a lot of trouble is being faced by the Maheshwari community. As per reports in India Today, it was then decided that an FD of Rs 50,000 to a couple who have a third child as a show of respect.
