With over a billion inhabitants India is second, after China, for being the world's most populated country. About one fourth of the population lives in urban areas.
Although India has recently experienced a quick economic development, it will take lots of additional effort for reaching the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. India gives home to one third of the poorest world population and the existing financial means within the country are divided unequally among its population. Weakest groups and individuals within society – woman, casteless people, migration workers and ethnic minorities - are very vulnerable for discrimination and abuse. Although forbidden by law, child labor is still very common in India.
