With more than 50% population below the age of 25 and about 65% below 35, the average age of an Indian after 10 years is likely to be 29 years, whereas the average age of a Chinese and Japanese, will be 37 and 48 respectively. In addition, India's dependency ratio by 2030 is expected to be just over 0.4. According to estimated figures, the Population of India will be largest in the World in year 2030.

But it will bring lots of serious issues related to health problems in India.
