PRI has been tracking India and the abuses under its population control program for decades.
We are currently working on a comprehensive report of Indian sterilization abuses, but for now, see some of our existing work on India below.
37% of all women between the ages of 15 and 49 living in India have been sterilized 
By the age of 35 more than half of all women in India are sterilized 
Most sterilizations are performed on women between the ages of 20 and 35, but one in a hundred married teenagers in India have been sterilized 
4.5 million Indian women are sterilized every year. 
34% of women (about one in three women) who have been sterilized say they were not informed that the procedure was permanent.
68% (about two out of three women) who have been sterilized say they were not informed about side effects or problems.
Informed consent rates are poor throughout the entire country, but are worse among the lesser educated and the lowest income brackets.
In 1996, the federal republic of India declared it’s family planning to be “target-free” but individual states still set yearly sterilization targets--often set in the hundreds of thousands.
The Total Fertility Rate of India (the average number of children born per woman) is 2.5.
The Net Reproduction Rate of India (the average number of daughters born per woman who survive through reproductive age) is 1.1.
Of India’s 29 states, 15 have fertility rates that are lower than replacement level.
