STATUS OF DEMOGRAPHIC DIVIDEND IN INDIA- A CRITICAL ANALYSIS

Haloi Dr. Dipanjali, Barman Dr. Rajesh Deb.

Abstract
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) defines Demographic Dividend as “the economic growth potential that can result from shifts in a population’s age structure, mainly when the share of the working-age population (15 to 64) is larger than the non-working-age share of population (14 and younger, and 65 and older)”. It is stated by UNFPA that a country with both increasing number of young people and declining fertility has the potential to reap a demographic dividend. The high growth of population in India, which has been considered as an important cause for slow economic growth of the country has experienced some rapid demographic change. Now a day, the change in demographic scenario in India has been considered more optimistically. The rapid fall in the birth rate has added fewer children to the population. According to the 2011 Census, the growth rate of 0 to 6 years population is negative (-0.3% per annum), thus a larger group of population will be moving towards the economically active group (aged 15 to 64 years). Thus, economic growth potential has increased in India. This paper examines some of the demographic change in India. It also discusses whether the current demographic dividend can be considered as an engine of growth. It also makes a study of the population age structure of some major states of India. Secondary data will be used for carry out the study. The study is carried out on secondary data viz., Census of India, Sample Registration System, working papers, papers published in different journal. Different Websites are explored for finding out information. Data are analysed by using table, graphs, diagrams etc. Population Pyramids are constructed by using excel.

Key words: Demographic dividend, Economic growth, Youth Population
