As per Telangana Municipalities Act, 1965 ( S.13-B), any person having more than two children would be disqualified for contesting elections but there are certain exceptions to the rule-
Therefore, if the said children were born before 1994, no disqualification would be invited, if the number of children has increased by 1995, no disqualification would be invited.
If the children are born after the set date then the person is ineligible to contest elections.
You can refer to this link for a case law on the matter- https://indiankanoon.org/doc/751326/ - Bhukya Bujji vs Bhukya Saraswathi And Ors (Andra High Court).
