The state of Rajasthan is offering prizes including television sets, food processors and even a Tata Nano car for people who agree to undergo sterilisation, a doctor has revealed.
"We want to promote sterilisation," Pratap Singh Dutter, the deputy chief medical officer of the state's Jhunjhunu district has said.
"Everyone who gets sterilised between today and 30 September will be entered into a lottery to win prizes."
The first prize is a Tata Nano and other rewards up for grabs include motorcycles and 21-inch TVs, Dutter said.
"We felt we were falling behind on our sterilisation targets of 21,000 per year, so the district collector came up with this idea. We hope at least 6,000 people will come forward in the next three months to get sterilised," he said.
