Population in India to reach record number – V6 Special Story
India, with 1.27 billion people is the second most populous country in the world, while China is on the top with over 1.36 billion people. Although, the crown of the world’s most populous country is on China’s head for decades, India is all set to take the Numero Uno position by 2030. Every year, India adds more people than any other nation in the world, and in fact the individual population of some of its states is equal to the total population of many countries. Some of the reasons for India’s rapidly growing population are poverty, illiteracy, high fertility rate, rapid decline in death rates or mortality rates and immigration from Bangladesh and Nepal.
