A study undertaken in hard core pockets having C.P.R. >50% of urban slums to sensitize target couples for encouraging spacing methods and sterilizations showed 55.4% coverage of 1820 unprotected eligible couples. This coverage is attributed to involvement of Aganwadi workers, Mahila Mandals and home visits. The motivational strategies such as sensitization of Mahila Mondals, provision of MCH services and inter personal communications were found to be effective. The reasons for non-acceptance, such as desire to have male and female child in 17.8%, post insertion bleeding due to Cu-T in 13.9% and refusal by male partners in 13.36% were noted in eligible couples. These reasons could be removed by continued inter personal communications. Illiteracy rate of 76.30% in living children of sterilized women indicates need of implementing literacy programme.
