The State has achieved the target of reduction of Total Fertility Rate (FTR) to 1.9 (SRS 2010) against the target of TFR to 2.1 to 2012. Family Planning Programme is being strengthened by distribution of condoms/contraceptives through ASHAs at village level at the door steps of needy clients. It will not only help in avoiding unwanted pregnancies but also protection against HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. The scheme is being implemented in all districts of the State.
