1. The GOI adopted the policy of attaining the NRR of 1 by the year 1996. NRR of 1 is equivalent to attaining approximately a 2-child norm.
2. If NRR is less than 1 the demographic performance of the country is said to be below the replacement level.
Demographers are of the view that NRR of 1 can be achieved only if 60% of the eligible couples are effectively practicing family planning.
3. The other 3 option are in agreement with the NPP 2000.
4. Although the NPP came into force in the year 2000 but the aim of attaining the NRR of 1 was earlier the goal of the national health policy, then of RCH program when the target year was increased to 2006. NRR is an indirect indicator, it will become 1 when the TFR becomes = 2.1 and the CPR becomes = 60%. Hence attainment of NRR = 1is not mentioned as a goal in NPP 2000.
