Overpopulation is one of the major challenges that India faces today. According to a UN report titled The World Population Prospects: The 2017 Revision, India’s population will surpass China’s in roughly seven years. The report, which was released in June 2017, also highlights the fact that the fertility rate of Indians has more than halved from a staggering 4.97 during 1975-1980 to 2.3 for 2015-2020. By 2025-30, the fertility rate was expected to go down to 2.1 and slide to 1.86 during 2045-50 and 1.78 during 2095-2100, the report had said.
