Matter of the fact is that a country can be populated as much as it likes, but it should have the resources to do so.
Many countries, like the US, are quite populated. But they have resources to sustain so many people. India on the other hand, having limited resources, can not sustain that many people.
Hence, India is also one of the most overpopulated countries in the world. Overpopulation has become one of the major environmental problems faced by the world today.
