Abstract: About 8 % of India’s population is over the age of 60, a fi gure similar to that of Indonesia but lower than China’s 12.4 %. In absolute numbers, however, there are more than 93 million elderly in India and this number is projected to increase to about 296 million by 2050 (United Nations 2013 ). This chapter presents important demographic, economic, social, family, health and policy perspectives on ageing in India. Unless stated otherwise, ‘elderly’ in this chapter refers to those aged 60 and above.
