India Surpasses China As Most Populated Country In The World

Guinness World Records, GWR, says India has surpassed China as most populated country despite being three times smaller.

Gatekeepers News reports that GWR confirmed that India has become the most populated country in the world with an estimated population of over 1.425 billion people.

This was according to the United Nations’ Population Division which estimated India’s number of residents to be 1,425,775,850.

India has surpassed China, which had a peak of 1.426 billion inhabitants in 2022, followed by a decline.

China had held the record ever since the UN started keeping track of population sizes around the globe in the 1950s.

Meanwhile, India’s area is three times smaller – 3.287 million sq km (1.269 m sq mi), while China covers a whopping 9.597 m sq km (4 m sq mi).

China, which is only slightly smaller than the United States, is the largest country in Asia and the fourth largest country in the world.

In terms of total area, India is the seventh largest country in the world.
