    Government Condoms have less takers now

      The Union ministry of health and family welfare, in reply to an RTI dated June 13, 2018, has informed that the number of condom-users has gone down in 19 states over the last six years. Government distributes Condoms free of cost

    The Union ministry of health and family welfare, in reply to an RTI dated June 13, 2018, has informed that the number of condom-users has gone down in 19 states over the last six years. Interestingly, all the Union Territories have increased figures in terms of condom-users with Dadra and Nagar Haveli posting the highest rise — 2,680 in 2016-17 from 1,116 in 2011-12.

    When contacted, an official in the ministry said, “There are often misquotations from the data collectors. We are working to reduce the gap and will soon be able to upload the same on public domain.” He, however, added that it may also be true that people are increasingly opting for other methods of contraception like pills, injections, vasectomy and tubectomy for which the use of condoms has come down.

    The states where the number of government-distributed condom users have gone down are Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Arunachal Pradesh, Delhi, Tripura and Uttarakhand.

    In 2011-12, Rajasthan registered 10,84,700 users which dipped to 6,50,542 in 2016-17, making the state lose the highest number of users. Uttar Pradesh, which had 6,87,905 users in 2011-12, the figure has declined to 6,05,052 in 2016-17.
