How India can combat a very populous poor country?

India can come out from the economic confusion?

Population growth has long been a concern of the government, and India has a lengthy history of explicit
population policy. In the 1950s, the government began, in a modest way, one of the earliest national,
government-sponsored family planning efforts in the developing world. The annual population growth rate
in the previous decade (1941 to 1951) had been below 1.3 %,and government planners optimistically
believed that the population would continue to grow at roughly the same rate.

India's high infant mortality and elevated mortality in early childhood remain significant stumbling blocks
to population control. India's fertility rate is decreasing, although, at 3.4 in 1994, it was lower than those
of its immediate neighbors (Bangladesh had a rate of 4.5 and Pakistan had 6.7). The rate is projected to
decrease to 3.0 by 2000, 2.6 by 2010, and 2.3 by 2020. India's population; however, may not stabilize
until 2060. Source: Country Studies
