India's exploding population: Infrastructure under strain in Mumbai
According to a UN forecast, India will overtake China as the world's most populous country this Friday, with more than 1.4 billion inhabitants. Large Indian cities like Mumbai are already saturated. More than 20 million people live in the country's economic capital, in an area barely six times larger than central Paris. Mumbai is the victim of excessive urbanisation, with rents soaring and wealth gaps widening between the upper classes and poorer residents, especially those living in slums.
1. India's population growth rate is already decreasing.
2. Massive infrastructure development is already happening, whether it's road, train or air or waterways.
Government is working on many infrastructure and development projects which will transform India in next couple of decades. Its a long journey but steps in the right direction.
That’s why ring road construction is happening in Mumbai. Never saw a positive reporting on India. Well done! It always encourages us to aim higher, what we need to do better and cheaper.
This is misleading. Mumbai has less density than more than 3 cities in France.
Downtown Mumbai has a lot of one story buildings for some reason. The rest are mostly 2-4 story buildings, which is strange in a city that's so densely population. I know these are old buildings, but in those days they should've followed the Paris or Barcelona model of "gentle density" and built their buildings with 7 floors.
Even Singapore & Hong Kong had huge slums in the 60s & 70s. Mumbai is on the right path , but it may take another 15-20 years to catch up.
Shift many offices to other cities... Pune or Navi Mumbai ... Also some to Ahmedabad, some to Nagpur or any other smaller city. 30 million if you consider all 8 municipal corporations together abutting Mumbai.
We thank you, India, for your contribution to World over-population
India’s a superpower since 2020

Focus on France that is sinking day by day ... India is develo...u people don't worry...
China's population is drop
India's population is increasing
Population explosion already happened in India. Almost all the tier 1 & tier 2 cities are full of population. There is no basic standard of living in these cities. Delhi and Mumbai along with Ahmedabad Bengaluru Hyderabad and kolkata are like worst cities among the world. No life in these metropolitan cities coz of huge population. All cities have more than +10 M population and Delhi and Mumbai have may be 2.5 to 30M population each...
God know in which direction India going on.
Note:- Present Modi Government really doing great job.
Perhaps better education on birth control might be in order.
