Street Children in India

In 2011, UNICEF estimated there were 11 million street children in India. That number is considered a conservative estimate.

The Indian Embassy has estimated that there are 314,700 street children in the metro areas such as Bombay, Calcutta, Madras, Kanpur, Bangalore, and Hyderabad, and around 100,000 in Delhi alone.

This information is cited from Consortium for Street Children.
