India to overtake China as the most populous country.

The 2022 version of United Nations World Population Prospects was released during the second week of July. It said the world population will breach the eight billion mark on November 15 this year.

And India will overtake China next year to become the world’s most populous nation with over 1.4 billion people. In 2050, the country is projected to have a population of 1.66 billion - way ahead of China’s 1.31 billion.

This might be not only because the rate of population growth in India is higher than in China, but the neighbour is also expected to experience an absolute decline in its population as early as next year.
