Caption : CHENNAI, 28/10/2011: New born babies in Chennai. Earth?s population will reach seven billion on 31st October 2011, a milestone that offers unprecedented challenges and opportunities to all of humanity, according to UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund. India will be the second most populous country in the world next to China. China has 1,350,044,605 (1.35 billion) population. India represents almost 17.25% of the world's population. In the present phase India will take nuber one position by 2030 with a growth rate in population of 1.5% and by the end of 2030, the population would be 1.52 billion. Every year, India adds more people than any other nation in the world, and in fact the individual population of some of its States is equal to the total population of many countries. Some of the reasons for India's rapidly growing population are poverty, illiteracy, high fertility rate, rapid decline in death rates or mortality rates and immigration from Bangladesh and Nepal. Alarmed by its swelling population, India started taking measures to stem the growth rate quite early. In fact India by launching the National Family Planning programme in 1952 became the first country in the world to have a population policy. The family planning programme yielded some noticeable results, bringing down significantly the country's fertility rate. In 1965-2009, the contraceptive usage more than tripled and the fertility rate more than halved. The efforts did produce positive results, however, failed to achieve the ultimate goal and the population of India since getting independence from Britain in 1947 increased almost three times.
