According to the amendments made by the State Great Khural (Parliament), starting January of 2011, the requirements for the “Famed Mother” order were reduced, where a mother of 4 will receive the second grade order and a mother of 6 is to receive the first grade order. With the change of the criteria, a total of 130,000 mothers were awarded in 2011, and 12,480 mothers have currently received their orders this year.
