India’s provisional population totals announced

India in World Population

 

 

 

The Office of the Registrar General and Census Commissioner, India, Ministry of Home Affairs on March 31 published the provisional population totals based on Census 2011 data.

According to the provisional population totals, India’s decadal population growth rate continues its predictable decline from the peak of 24.8 percent over 1961-71, touching 17.64 percent, the lowest since Independence. This, though, is higher than the Central Statistical Organisation’s estimate, resulting in the enumerated total population being 121 crore, about 3 crore higher than the Central Statistical Organisation’s (CSO) forecast. Economic Times reported that population growth in Assam and West Bengal is lower than the national average, suggesting that fears in some quarters over an immigrant flood from Bangladesh are greatly exaggerated.
