20 of the Most Populated Cities in the World
Mumbai is the most populated city in India, and the eighth most populated city in the world, with an estimated population of 20.7 million. Mumbai, also called Bombay, is the capital city of the state of Maharashtra in India. Mumbai’s population has nearly doubled since 1991, when its population was just 12.5 million. The rapid growth in population has only led to serious health-related issues and a large percentage of the population living in slums.
