¶¶ According to 2011 Census, population of Mumbai was 1.84 Crore. It is India's highest populated city. 

¶¶ Population density of India according to 2011 census is 382 persons per square kilometre. Delhi has the highest population density which is 11,297 per square kilometre.

Shreya Visen answered Jun 14, 2020
It is Delhi.
Delhi has the population density of 
29,149 counts per square km. It means that if we cover 1 sq.km of area in Delhi then the number of persons lying in that area would be 29,149. Means 29,149 people live in this much small area of land.
Population density determines the number of persons living in per unit area. If we select any unit area at random then the city or country which will show the most number of people in that area, that particular city/country is most densely populated.

Delhi is the dense populated city of our country. the most significance reason behind it is, Delhi is capital of our India. capital of India and dense population is simultaneously related to each other as it is our capital every resources is available there. the monuments like historical, presidential, give the opportunity of job. every facility is available there as it is capital of India. Many people went there is search of job but just after some time they settled there, just because they get their basic resources from there from their child schooling to their job or trade. Trading is also can be a reason behind it, as it is center of India it is the best place for trading.

Sid Martonn answered Aug 19, 2020
The reason for Mumbai and Delhi being the most densely populated cities are :

1. They have a heavy pull factor. They attract a huge number of immigrants from various places.

2. The distribution of population is very uneven. Some live in houses, some in flats and many in slums.

3. Delhi being the National capital and Mumbai being the financial capital, both the places are highly developed and considered an important location from many aspects.


Density of population in India is 382 persons per sq km. Delhi (11,320) turns out to be the most densely inhabited followed by Chandigarh (9,258), among all States/UTs, both in 2001 and 2011 Census.
