is rapidly rising population a constraint in the process of human capital formation?

Yes rapidly rising population is a constraint in the process of human capital formation in India. Population explosion exerts pressure on the available limited resources. In other words, rising population reduces the per capita availability of facilities such as housing, sanitation, water, drainage, power supply, education etc provided to people. So, the pressure on these facilities retards the quality of life and lowers the capacity to acquire specialised skills and knowledge.
Thus, the standard of living remains low.
