Mention two reasons for the rapid increase of population in india

Solution 1

 Reasons for the increase of population in India:

  • Most Indian families desire to have at least one son. Hence, a couple produces several children till a son is born.
  • Most of the rural population is still illiterate, ignorant and superstitious. Therefore, they do not make any effort to avoid pregnancy.

Solution 2

(a) Illiteracy:
Most of the rural population which forms the bulk of our society is still illiterate, ignorant and superstitious.
They also do not know the functioning of the human reproductive system.
(b) Traditional Beliefs:
Among the people from lower strata of the society, children are regarded as a gift of God and a sign of prosperity.
Therefore, they make no effort to avoid pregnancy.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
