The following is the list of most populous cities in India. The population statistics indicated in this article are for the year 2011. The list does not indicate the population of the urban agglomerations. Often cities are bifurcated into multiple regions (municipalities) which results in creation of cities within cities which may figure in the list.

Note: as per Census of India, 2011, the cities with more than 1 million population are known as Million Plus Cities, and the cities with more than 4 million population are known as Mega Cities.[1]
