Thee will be more older women than men by 2050 in India

It is projected that in India, women above the age of 60 will outnumber men in the same age group by 2050 as women tend to live longer, according to a report published by the United Nations Population Fund ( UNFPA) and HelpAge International on 'Ageing in the 21st century: A celebration and a challenge'
