While approaching the twentieth century, there was a noticeable increase in world's population that alarmed many leaders. Study shows that tremendous growth in populace can hinder the nation's economic development. Report disclosed that this will affect the undeveloped countries but also industrialized and developing countries.

To begin with, the government is facing various problems and constraints to the country's development cause by abrupt escalation of population. Basically, it has to work hard to meet and render the fundamental services for the people. The necessary and basic needs are depreciating in urban areas but limited and inadequate services are provided in rural and remote areas. And because of insufficient and scarce resources the nutritional requirements of the family are also not properly address.

In addition, free education is hardly given by the government and most of the time its quality is not given considerable attention. Public library is not sufficiently equipped with learning materials to give students some alternative to have better education.

Moreover, significant increase in unemployment rate is also attributable to population growth. Study also reveals that most employed individual is receiving salary that is incapable of providing the basic necessities.

Clean and green environment, peace and order situation are a common problems caused by overpopulation. The government is providing a big portion of the annual budget to control cleanliness and orderliness, not mention the left and right insurgency problem in the case of our country.

Overpopulation is not a problem of the state alone but by the family. So, the family being the first affected by this crisis must have a careful planning of its family. And since leaders are introducing various ways to control it, it is the duty of the people to cooperate. All the benefits of having a controlled population growth will revert back to each individual.
