    Indian population increased by 181 million

    New Delhi: India now has a population of 1.21 billion according to the latest Census figures released by the Home Secretary and the Registrar General of India on Thursday. This is an increase of 181 million people since the last Census - nearly equivalent to the population of Brazil.

    India's population is now bigger than the combined population of USA, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan and Bangladesh, says the Census report. Uttar Pradesh is the most populous state and the combined population of UP and Maharashtra is bigger than USA.

    Of the total population, 623.7 million are males and 586.5 million are females.

    However, the population grew at a rate of 17.64 percent which is the sharpest reduction in growth rate ever.

    While Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Puducherry has the highest population growth rate of about 55 percent, Nagaland has the lowest.

    The density of population is highest in Delhi, followed by Chandigarh.

    The 2011 Census report also shows that India now has a child sex ratio of 914 female against 1,000 male - the lowest since Independence.

    This is the 15th Census conducted since 1872. It was carried out in two phases, covering 640 districts and 5924 sub-districts.

    The cost of the counting exercise is 22,000 million.

    Looks like India will overtake China in population, which makes this all the more interesting. ;)

    Those bachelors who are not married and donot have a GF should start looking for one. With gender imbalance it will be very difficult for them to get a decent GF. I am planning to start a dating assistance consultancy . :D

    This religious data is outdated. Besides the website says this is the provisional results of the census so all analysis of religion etc will be done later, I think.

    Yeah i see that. I shoudn't have made that post.
    Anyway I was thinking what is the need for religious composition data. What does the GOI do with it. How is it useful to the common man?

    Which India do you live in mate? The more the GFs, the merrier it is.:D
    Btw, I read somewhere that girls population will plummet by 20% in the next decade or so. So you guys in your 20s - get a GF & stick to her. Even if that means doing the laundry, going shopping et. al.:D

    Every country is majority based, if the majority collapses then the country loses its identity and it collapses! Nationality is nothing more than over grown tribalism and if the dominant tribe goes then the grouping has no meaning!

    I cant believe the population is still in 1947 ratio!! I am sure there are more Christian converts now.

    What do you mean? Stop using language and religion as a tool for your logic. You are GKafir, remember.

    The gender bias is deepening and disturbing.

    The one good thing to come out of this, though is the new literacy rate at 74.04%. Which is pretty fantastic, in that India measures this number as the number of literates aged 7 and above. While most Western countries measure illiteracy, via standardized literacy tests at age 15. The literacy rate for the general youth or adolescent population is obviously much higher, given that they don't factor in children starting school late; that those that drop out of school after a time are still somewhat 'barely literate' and the number of adolescents being educated by NGO's is sizable in this country. I'm also made aware that the GoI does not count those educated in madarassas or those studying in makatib or Darut Tahfiz's under the literacy count. Which is telling, because Indian madrassas are very different from their middle eastern or Pakistani counterparts, with a greater focus on secular education and technology. I am told however that there are plans to include these under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and the Universalization of Elementary Education (UEE) programme.

    The sex-ratio is something that must be remedied soon. As should programs now be intensified for a curtailment of reproductive rates, particularly in the northern regions of U.P and Bihar.
