According to a shocking new revelation, a study has found some incremental data regarding the population in Delhi and how it fares with the rest of the world's cities as well as countries.

Though it is no surprise that the population of Delhi is far more than that of other cities in Europe and the United States, the fact that the population of our National Capital is more than that of several countries is something incredible indeed.

What's the update?

The population of Delhi is now higher than that of New Zealand, Greece, Zimbabwe, Sweden and Netherlands. According to the data released by the Election Committee of India, the population of the national capital has officially crossed the two crore mark.

Since Delhi is a melting pot of all cultures, Indian and otherwise, the news hasn't really got anyone surprised. What is surprising is that the population of an Indian city is actually more than many countries entire strength. Under the surface, this is a problem that needs to be addressed through the means of education.

Apart from these countries, the 2 crore population of Delhi also happens to be more than that of 140 other regions in the world, many of which are significantly larger in area than Delhi.

For example, the area of Australia is about 5183 times the size of Delhi, but the population is just about 1.3 times the population. Essentially, this means that in Delhi, there are a whole lot of people living in a small space. Thinking about the future, it would make sense for Delhi to expand vertically rather than horizontally.

Knock Knock

At any rate, India is no stranger to such facts and figures. There are several Indian states that have populations far greater than that of different countries put together. However, it is an issue that seriously needs to be looked after and not dismissed easily.
