Monthly allowance for Parsi couples to have more kids


Vadodara, 19 November 2013: In the wake of alarming fall in the population of Parsis, a monthly allowance would be provided to the couples in the community who give birth to a second or a third child, Bombay Parsi Punchayet said.

 

At a congregation of the community held at Sanjan in Valsad district of Gujarat yesterday, it was decided that every Parsi couple giving birth to second child would get Rs 3,000 per month till the child attains the age of 18 years.

 

While the couple giving birth to a third child will get Rs 5,000 per month, Punchayat's chairman Dinshaw Mehta said.

 

Speaking to PTI over phone, Mehta said, "The congregation was attended by about 3,000 Parsis from various parts of the country and abroad. We discussed the issue of survival of Zoroastrian community in changing times."
