With India accounting for 1.21 billion people, a call for taking concerted action to stabilise the country’s population was made here on Wednesday on the occasion of World Population Day.

A Conference on ‘Population Action: Towards a Better Tomorrow’ was organised at Vigyan Bhavan which mooted repositioning family planning, especially in high-priority States, increasing participation from politicians and other ministries, increasing visibility around population stabilisation and also generating more awareness on family planning.
