What is the disabled population in India?
Hello. Thank you for writing to NewzHook. The last census about the Indian population was done in 2011. As per the data from the 2011 census there are is 2.68 crore people with disabilities in India, which is 2.21% of the population.
The next census will be held in 2021 and will hopefully provide the latest numbers. To get more info about the census data, you can visit the website: http://censusindia.gov.in/
