Re: Tracking India's Admission into International Groups

Actually, it doesn't even need to be that formal. If India signed bilateral deals with every NSG member , it would pretty much negate the need for NSG.

India should never have exceeded a population of about 150-160m. That would put the population density at about 50 persons / km2. Anything over 150p/km2 is overcrowded.
