India became the largest population country, surpassing China in 2023.
• Humans living on Earth has officially surpassed some 8 billion or, 8000000000 (800 crore.)
• Our population on earth has been rapidly growing, it has been doubled since the 1970s when it was around almost 4 billion people, and till the end of the 70s decade it almost reached a billion count.
India as most populated country in the world:
India has great potential, being the most populated in the world. It has its major population in their 20-50, which is about 44.7% of the total population. This age group is the largest in India, and it is expected to continue to grow in the coming years.
• The population of India is projected to reach 1.6 billion by 2050, and the age group of 20-50 is expected to make up about 47.5% of the total population.

This makes India a place with more intelligent minds, more capable work force, easily available cheap labour, place in the world.
This makes India a big market in every expect, be it tech consumer base, food, infrastructure, the list goes on.
Lesser population results in more competition when in comes to finding a life partner, or in simple terms getting married, because, more people choose boy over a girl as their only 1 children (option), then this takes us to a ratio of fewer girls as compared to boys, this then creates issues like mental pressure, depression and what not.
India surpasses China and crowned as the most populated country in the world:
China saw a steady decline in the birth rate as a result of the strict child policies, while India added about 180 million people and is now the world’s most populous nation.
• India does not have any policy that limits the birth rate, and that's a good thing, let's learn how?
• The Policy to limit birth rate of the country backfired on China, and it seems to be a bad experiment.
What is the problem with birth control?:
• China is facing the problem of less young generation, and more old people in the country. It faces hardship to remain as a good place for finding cheap work force. Older people tend to work lesser and slower in comparison to younger people.
• Less young people in a country results in slow economy, and declining population possess threats like mental stress (as few young man-women has to take care of the more old people, meaning more stress, work load etc).
• Birth control poicy in China resulted in more competition, when in comes to finding a life partner, or in simple terms getting married, because, more people choose boy over a girl as their only 1 children (option), this takes us to a ratio of fewer girls as compared to boys, this then creates issues like mental pressure, depression and what not.
China reversed its decision:
China was forced last year to change its children policy, and increased the amount of children a couple could have, from 1 to 3, it urged families to have a second and even third child. Also it limited access to non-medical abortions.
• While some Indians argue that there must be a childbirth control policy in the country, but the results from neighbour China aren't motivational or positive, those who defend such policies, should take notes off of it.
UN on world Population:
In the next 50+ years, we've grown the double of the previous growth of more than 173 years combined, in terms of population growth. We hit the 1 billion population count in 1804, as of records.
• The United Nations has said, warning of more hardship in store for regions already facing resource scarcity because of climate change.
• Reaching eight billion people is “a sign of human success, but it’s also a great risk for our future,” said John Wilmoth, the director of the UN’s population division.
• Middle-income countries, mainly in Asia, accounted for most of that growth, gaining some 700 million people since 2011.
• On the other hand, other countries have seen the rapid decline as well in the birth rate, like the United States, European countries, and Japan.
• The global population has increased eight-fold since 1800, from an estimated one billion to eight billion, largely due to the development of modern medicine and the industrialisation of agriculture, which boosted global food supplies.
