Not China, now India is the world’s most populous country, this figure surprised

India Overtakes China in Population: The most populous country in the world is no longer China, but our own country India. Earlier this year, global experts predicted that India would have the highest number of deaths in 2023, and now the latest data from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has confirmed this.

United Nations (UNFPA) data shows that India is now the most populous country in the world. India now has two million more people than China, and the population of this country has crossed 140 crores. The birth rate in China has come down, and it was recorded in minus this year.

United Nations organization released the latest figures
UNFPA’s ‘The State of World Population Report 2023’, released with the title ‘8 Billion Lives, Infinite Possibilities: The Case for Rights and Choice’, states that India’s population now stands at 1,428.6 million, while The population of China is 1,425.7 million. That means there is a difference of 2.9 million in the population of both. The latest figures in the report have been given in the category of ‘Demographic Indicators’.

For the first time the population of India exceeded that of China
This is the first time in the United Nations population data record that the population of India has been recorded more than that of China since 1950, in fact the United Nations was established after the Second World War ended in 1945 and the 1950 United Nations population data Started collecting and issuing. If you look at the chart and table of the population of the United Nations from 1950 to 2023, the population of India increased in this way-

  1. Now that means the population of India in 2023 is 1,428,627,663, which is 0.81% more than 2022.
  2. India’s population in 2022 was 1,417,173,173, which was 0.68% more than 2021.
  3. India’s population in 2021 was 1,407,563,842, which was 0.8% more than 2020.
  4. The population of India in 2020 was 1,396,387,127, which was 0.96% more than in 2019.

India also has the largest youth population in the world
UNFPA report states that 25% of India’s population is in the age group of 0-14, 18% in the age group of 10-19 years, 26% in the age group of 10-24 years, 15-64 years People up to 68% and people above 65 are 7%.

The birth rate in China has decreased, and the elderly have become more
On the other hand, if we look at China, the respective figures there are 17%, 12%, 18%, 69% and 14%. There, people above 65 years of age have become about 200 million. A few decades ago, the Chinese government had implemented the 1-child policy, due to which the government had to suffer in such a way that people stopped having children.

The Chinese government is trying hard, the population is not increasing!

Now the situation is such that the Chinese government says that couples who produce 2 or more children will be given many facilities. Even many colleges have announced that young boys and girls should go on ‘spring break’ for at least 15 days to fall in love and settle down and have children.

In the beginning of this year, a shocking news also came that the most populous city in the world, Beijing, which is also the capital of China, has decreased instead of increasing. Corona epidemic is also being considered as a major reason for this.
