The study is completely based on secondary data compiled from the United Nation Reports, World Bank Reports and Census of India, different issues. The study found that India is now in the third stage of demographic transition. With the process of demographic transition, the fertility rate and mortality rate becomes smaller, which increases the share of the aged population in the country. It is observed that the share of the older population was 8.3 per cent and it is expected to rise up to 12.6 per cent in 2025 as per census 2011. Moreover, it is also seen that the share of the elderly female is more in comparison to the elderly male in India. Finally, the study concludes with suitable policy prescriptions.
