Orphans in india

 There are over 2 crore orphans in India; more than the total population of Sri Lanka! This figure is from a detailed study by SOS Children’s Villages. The ChildLine portal of the Government states that “UNICEF estimates that there are 25 million orphaned children in India in 2007” and, “Another study estimates that there are about 44 million destitute children and over 12 million orphan and abandoned children in India”. The Planning Commission and the Government have never had a structured survey of these children. For all we know, this figure could be much higher!.
