Population Education Programme (PEP)

Rapid growth of population in India has become a matter of concern for one and all. At the beginning of this century, India’s population stood at 23.8 crore (Census 1901), a four-fold increase in India’s population which stood at 84.3 crores (Census 1991). The present century has witnessed that it reached more than 120 crores. Growing population is not an issue of numbers alone. However, it is an issue, which is intimately related and has implications for socio-economic development, environment and quality of life of our citizens. In order to slow down population growth and accelerate the process of improving the quality of life of our citizens, multi-pronged initiatives are being taken. Integration of Population Education in all sectors of Education (i.e. formal and non-formal) is one such initiative. The purpose of this initiative is to educate the present generation about population, development and environment for a better quality of life of their own and at their future generations.
