The population of India is 1.28 billion as per the recent census and it is a progression that the population of our nation would be more than China, the most populous country in the world by 2050. Hence, the most unfortunate consequence will be that India will become the most populous nation by 2050.
Poverty is no new factor for India. Since independence, approximately half of our population is living below poverty line. There are no expected consequences such as reduction in the people with BPL because of the increasing trend of corruption in the distant future. However, if we the citizens of India plan to eradicate poverty, we can do that by helping the needy but it is extremely difficult in today's scenario practically, because of the hike in the prices of everything we use in our day-to-day lives. Well! It is manageable for us to bear these hikes but the people who are below the poverty line or are just having their incomes at the designated income determining the poverty line are the sufferers and they suffer everyday and every hour of their lives.
