The impact of “Population Explosion” (Rapid Growing Population) on India’s economic development.
Is India over-populated? A critical examination of the present population policy.
The fastest rise in the population of India was during the period of 1951 to 1981, in which the population was from 36 crores in 1951 was reached around 70 crores in 1981. During this period of 30 years, the population increased by around 34 crores, which is the fastest rise in the history of population statistics. Death rate has become controlled due to modern health and medical facilities and it has reduced to become 15 persons per thousand whereas; the birth rate has not got any significant reduction.
