Storyline


As India's population continues to rise, experts are worried that the rising numbers will put severe pressure on the country.

India's current estimated population is 1.37 billion, double what it was 40 years ago.

According to a 2019 United Nations (UN) Report on World Population Prospects, the country's population is projected to overtake China by 2027.

With its rising population, common people may face the risk of being denied access to resources.

"If nothing is done to improve the access to education, health for all, naturally there will be losers and winners," said Argentina Matavel Piccin, a representative from the UN Population Fund.

India faces other challenge as well. Almost half of its population is under the age of 25. This demographic can only be fully utilized if the people in their working age are actually working. The challenge in the next 15 years is to take steps to create a growth momentum to prevent a demographic disaster.

"When these children are from 10 to 25, that's when they can get into productive employment, productive activities. And if till 25 you have not engaged them in economic activities, in constructive social activities, then they often become a demographic burden. So that's also going to be a huge huge worry for this country," said Amitabh Behar, CEO of the non-profit organization Oxfam India.

Experts believe that unless the government implements a sound policy proposal, it will not be able to provide a minimum quality life for every citizen.
