The word family planning defines itself. It is planning of family. As the population is increasing at an alarming rate, small family is the need of present time. If the family is large their wants will not be in the economic reach of the person. It will be impossible for people to pro­vide good education to their children. They will lack in all facilities of life. It will lead to poverty. So family planning is the need of the hour. Gov­ernment is also making a large effort in this matter. There are family planning centres throughout the country. Different devices are there to achieve the goal of family planning. But it is purely a matter of an indi­vidual. It is pious duty of every one that they should have a small family. If there is a population blast there will be no food and basic necessities for them. So it is better to have a small family.
