(11.22.2007)

Originally, the main bodies collecting the childbearing fees for citizens who gave birth to babies not in compliance with the provisions were mainly town and sub-district governments and neighborhood offices. They directly made the decision to impose it on citizens who gave birth to babies not in compliance with the provisions.

According to The Management Provisions of Imposing the Social Maintenance Fee by the State Council, and the Management Regulations of Imposing the Social Maintenance Fee in Shanghai the main body collecting the social maintenance fee in Shanghai is the Population and Family Planning Commission at district and county levels.
