It is gratifying to note as per latest census that was carried out in India in the year 2011, the population has risen to 1.21 billion people over the last ten years--an increase by 181 million, according to the new census released today, but significantly the growth is slower for the first time in nine decades.

Bishwa Nath Singh :

The total population of our country which accounts for the world‘s 17.5 per cent population, comprises 623.7 million males and 586.5 million females as revealed by the provisional 2011 Census report. China is the most populous nation accoun...ting for 19.4 per cent of the global population. The population of India has increased by more than 181 million during the decade 2001-2011 whereas the growth rate in 2011 is 17.64 per cent in comparison to 21.15 per cent in 2001.The literacy rate has gone up from 64.83 per cent in 2001 to 74.04 per cent in 2011 showing an increase of 9.21 per cent. As per the latest census report showed literacy had improved during the decade by 9.2 percentage points to 74 percent. But the number of females per 1,000 males in the 0-6 age group fell to 914 from 927 during the past decade, pointing to the continued practice of selective abortions India's population grew at its slowest pace since independence in the decade to 2011 a trend welcomed by some since it may lead to higher living standards and sounder public finances in a country with enough young people.
