The RGI, which is officially in charge of national demographic data, delayed its colllection for the 2021 Census due to the difficulties posed by the second Covid-19 wave, Business Standard daily reported.

The provisional estimations can be made in 2022, but detailed data would not be available until at least 2024, the daily pointed out.

The Sample Registration System, a RGI division, presented general data per age group.

The latest availbale data show that the working-age population increased from 62.6 to 66.0 percent from 2012 to 2018.

The detailed 2021 census will show us what amount of workers are full-time employees and who work marginally or part-time.

According to UN projections, India’s population will rise to 1.717 billion inhabitants by 2069 if the demographic parameters do not change regarding current levels.
