Size And Growth Rate Of Population In India
 
 
India today possesses about 2.4 Percent of the total land area of the world but she has to support about 17 percent of the world population. At the beginning of this century india’s population was 236 million and according to 2001 census, the population of india is 1,027 million.
 
A study of growth rate of india’s population falls into four phases:
 
 
1891-1921: Stagnant population
 
1921-1951: Steady growth
 
1951-1981: Rapid high growth
 
1981-2001: High growth with definite signs of slowing down
 
 
During the first phase of 30 years (1891-1921), the population of india grew from 236 million in 1891 to 251 million in 1921 i.E., Just by 15 million.

During the second phase of 30 years (1921 to 1951) the population of india grew from 251 million in 1921 to 361 million in 1951 i.E. By 110 million. During the third phase of 30 years (1951-1981), the population of india grew from 361 million in 1951 to 683 million in 1981. In other words, there was a record growth of population by 332 million in a period of 30 years. During 1981 to 2001, india entered the fourth phase of high population growth with definite signs of slowing down. Total population increased from 683 million in 1981 to 1,027 million in 2001 indicating an increase of 50.4 % During the 20 years period.

 However, the second decade (1991-2001) of this phase registered a decline (1.93%) In the annual average rate of growth. This is a welcome trend, which should be strengthened.
