Health officials offer Tata Nano's for sterilisations (IN)

With India's population set to overtake China's by 2030, the Government is looking for ways to trim the country's birth rate.

As such, authorities in Rajasthan created an outlandish competition that gives neutered patients a chance to win a Tata Nano city-car, food blender's, televisions, and more.

"The prizes include a Nano car, five motorcycles, five 21" colour TVs and seven mixer-grinders. "The aim is to encourage sterilisation in the district," said Jhunjhunu CMO Sitaram Sharma. Provisional Census 2011 shows an 11.8% population growth in Jhunjhunu in ten years.
