Any person who gets a job after meeting this condition will have to maintain it till end of his service, he added. "The two-children norm will be applicable for employment generation schemes like giving tractors, offering homes and others government benefits as well. Besides, all elections such as panchayats, municipal bodies and autonomous councils will also follow this," he said.
Mr Sarma, who is also the Education Minister, said the policy also aims to give free education to all girls up to university level. "We want to make all facilities -- fees, transportation, books and mess dues in hostels-- free. This step will also encourage girls to complete their education," he added.
The minister said he will consider including a provision for 50 per cent reservation for women in government jobs and elections. "We will seek public suggestions till July. Then it will go to the assembly for debate and adopting a resolution," Mr Sarma said.
