India has world's highest student population

    Recently released Census 2011 data throws up a startling statistic that the number of students in India is a gigantic 315 million.
Census data gives ages of these students and over 3.3 million of them are above 30 years of age. Over 12 lakh are above 60 years and 1.2 lakh are above 80 years and the 'students' reported in the 0-4 age group are 10.5 million.
Undoubtedly, parents have been pushing their young kids to join play schools in an attempt to give them a head start in later competition.
Another interesting aspect of the students is that about 9.5 million are 'marginal workers'. That is, they are working on an irregular or part time basis, not more than six months in a year.
