Expert Answer

 

Overpopulation, poverty and illiteracy are interrelated. You can elaborate on the following points:

  • When a group of population depends on a particular region and its productivity, the place is assumed as overpopulated. In case the productivity of that area is unable to meet the needs of the number of residents, it causes poverty, illiteracy, corruption and other problems.
  • Often slums in India are teeming with countless births.  These street children grow up without adequate food, facilities and education. Thus, they contribute to the overwhelming unemployment in India. Thus, overpopulation and poverty form a vicious circle.
  • In a overpopulous nation, all children do not get opportunities to good quality education. Generally, lack of education results in unemployment and poverty.
  • Rising population is one of the major reasons for increase in poverty in India. Over population leads to larger families and low income which impacts their standard of living. Further, the problem of unequal distribution of income increases the gap between the rich and the poor.
