In the State as a whole, the growth of Sikhs at 13.37 percent has been lower than that of Hindus at 18.68 percent; but both have registered much lower growth than the Muslims at 26.12 percent and the Christians at 75.53 percent. Of 12.4 lakh Sikhs in Haryana, 4.9 lakhs are in the western Sirsa and Fatehabad districts, and another 6.2 lakhs are in the six northern districts of Panchkula, Ambala, Yamunanagar, Kurukshetra, Kaithal and Karnal, which adjoin Punjab and have a strong Punjabi presence. According to the same source, there are 54.9 million Hindus outside India forming 6.15 percent of all Hindus. Up to 1981, the Sikhs in India were growing considerably faster than the Hindus and the total population; their share in the population of India in this period rose from 1.74 percent in 1951 to 1.97 percent in 1981. Unlike Punjab, the share of Sikhs in Haryana has been declining continuously since the formation of the State. The share of Sikhs has declined both in Punjab and outside Punjab; but the decline has been more pronounced among Sikhs outside Punjab. A striking features of the Table and the Map below is the concentration of Sikhs in the Punjab and its neighbourhood. The decline in the share and numbers of Sikhs, especially during 2001-11, cannot be easily explained. The share of Sikhs in the population of India, which was slowly rising up to 1991, has begun to decline during the last two decades, and the decline during 2001-11 has been much larger than the previous decade. Similarly, in Himachal Pradesh, the Sikhs are concentrated mainly in Una, Solan and Sirmaur districts. In Delhi also the share of Sikhs has been continuously declining and has come down from 7.67 percent in 1961 to 3.40 percent in 2011. In the Table below, we have compiled the number, proportion and growth rates of Sikhs in 1991, 2001 and 2011 for all the major States of India with more than 0.10 percent of Sikhs in their population. The all-India average of the female-male ratio of Sikhs is indeed lower than the other major communities. In Mandi, Bilaspur, Shimla and Kinnaur districts, however, the Sikhs have registered negative growth. DEMOGRAPHY OF HARYANA: As shown by the 2011 specification, Hindus (87%) constitute the majority of the state’s population with Sikhs (4.91%) and Muslims (7.03%). In Jalandhar, Hoshiarpur and Shahid Bhagat Singh Nagar (Nawanshahar) districts, they now form less than one third of the population; and they are in a minority in Gurdaspur and Sahibzada Ajit Singh Nagar (Mohali) districts. for making special rules to appoint the Chief Gurdwara Election Commission under the supervision of the Prime Minister and the Home Minister. The Sehajdhari Sikh Party which is a registered political party by the EC of India has hailed the decision of the Union Govt. In Udham Singh Nagar, which accommodates two-thirds of all Sikhs in the State, Sikhs have grown by 15.06 compared to the growth of 32.62 percent of the Hindus, 46.33 percent of Muslims and 56.29 percent of Christians. The Sikh population in Haryana is close to one crore, though the number of Punjabi-speaking population could be much higher. Even the actual number of Sikhs has declined in several major States, including Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Assam. Of 8.7 lakh Sikhs in Rajasthan, about 6 lakhs are in Ganganagar and Hanumangarh districts that border the southwestern districts of Punjab. As indicated by the 2011 evaluation population of Haryana, Hindus comprise 88% and are the majority with Muslims at 7% and Sikhs 4.9% being the biggest minorities. In Jammu and Kashmir, half of the Sikhs in the State are in the Jammu district alone. As we have seen, 1.14 lakh of 2.35 lakh Sikhs in the State are in Jammu district; and in this district, the growth of Sikhs during 2001-11 at 11.89 percent is somewhat higher than that of Hindus at 11.19 percent. The size of each state/province in Punjab with estimated populations are: Punjab, India: 21 million (60% Sikhs, 35% Hindus, 2% Muslims) Haryana, India: 18 million (90% Hindus) Himachal Pradesh, India: 5.5 million (96% Hindus) Punjab, Pakistan: 80 million (95% Muslims) Their growth in the other three districts is also considerably lower than the other communities. Thus the immediate neighbourhood of Punjab accounts for about 26 out of the 48 lakh Sikhs outside Punjab. The popular impression about the presence of Sikhs everywhere is probably a result of their higher visibility in general and their extraordinary ability to form a disciplined and vibrant religious community even in far off places with rather small numbers. The ratio is 903 females per 1000 males for the Sikhs compared to 943 for the total population of India, 939 for the Hindus and 951 for the Muslims. Their growth has been indeed positive in Pilibhit, Kheri, Rampur and Bijnor, four of the districts in which they have a significant presence. Thus, in relative terms, the size of Sikh diaspora is not much larger than the Hindu diaspora. According to the 2011 census of the total 25351462 population of Haryana, Hindus numbering 22171128 constitute 87.5% of the whole population of the state followed by 1781342 numbers of Muslims [7%] and 1243752 of Sikhs [Approx. Such contraction in the demographic presence of a religiously valuable and politically sensitive community should be a matter of a great concern. If we correct for these exclusions by interpolating the numbers for these two censuses, then we get the figures as shown in the Table here. In Haryana the share of Sikhs has been declining since 1961 and in Chandigarh since 1971. The share of Hindus has correspondingly gone up from 75.84 percent in 1991 to 80.78 percent now. As India is the birthplace of this religion, it stands to reason that it is still home to the majority of its followers. During 2001-11, Sikhs in Punjab have grown by 9.68 percent; those outside Punjab have a registered a growth of just 4.42 percent. Substantial communities of Sikhs live in the Indian states or union territories of Chandigarh where they form 13.11% of the population, Haryana (over 1.2 million), Rajasthan, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh, Assam and Jammu and Kashmir. Further, Sikhs with (4.91%), Muslims (7.03%) are the largest minorities in the state. Haryana Urban Population 2011 Out of total population of Haryana, 34.88% people live in urban regions.

It is only during the last two decades that they have begun to grow at a slower pace than others; in these two decades, their share in the population of India has come down from 1.95 to 1.72 percent. But in these districts also Sikhs have grown much slower than the other communities, and their share in the population has contracted everywhere. Muslim Population in Haryana is 17.81 Lakhs (7.03 percent) of total 2.54 Crore. The presence of the Sikhs in these two States was slowly rising as seen in the Table here. Outside Punjab and its neighbourhood, the share of Sikhs has declined everywhere except in Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. In Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, though the number of Sikhs in the State as a whole has not declined yet their numbers have declined in a very large number of districts within these States.

Sikhism is the fourth largest religion in India and is concentrated in the state of Punjab with some spread to Haryana, Delhi NCR, Rajasthan, and Uttarakhand.

They have also improved their share in some of the smaller States like Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Goa and Puducherry; but in these States, the total numbers involved are small. During the decade, they have recorded the highest growth of 36.25 percent in the rapidly expanding district of Gautam Buddha Nagar adjoining Delhi; but even in that district, their growth is somewhat lower than that of the total population at 37.11 percent. The major part of the decline in the growth of Sikhs is, of course, contributed by Punjab, where more than 75 percent of the Sikhs of India live. In the following, we try to document the various dimensions of this decline. The Sikh population in Haryana is close to one crore, though the number of Punjabi-speaking population could be much higher. This is the first time since the creation of the current reorganised State of Punjab, when the Sikhs outside Punjab have grown slower than those in Punjab. In Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh, the Sikhs are concentrated in a contiguous belt comprising Udham Singh Nagar of Uttarakhand and the adjoining Bijnor, Rampur, Pilibhit, Shahjahanpur and Kheri pocket of Uttar Pradesh. But in the last decade of 2001-11, the growth of Sikhs outside Punjab has declined to just 4.42 percent from 26.52 percent of the previous decade. Sikhs compose at least 20% of the total Sikh population,4 and in the past have tended to oppose their Jat Sikh coreligionists who are identified with the landed elements. These five are among the few districts where the Sikh presence is relatively high. In the previous year, the Census was not conducted in Assam, though the number of Sikhs there is not very significant. The share of Sikhs in this Capital town has been declining continuously since 1971; the decline has been rather rapid during the last two decades. Of 2.08 crore Sikhs enumerated in the country in 2011, 1.60 crore are in the Punjab alone. The number of Sikhs in 1991 in the Table above is under-estimated because it excludes the considerable number of Sikhs in Jammu and Kashmir where the Census could not be held during that year. During 2001-11, the Sikhs have grown at a much lower rate compared to the Hindus; who themselves have grown slower than the total population of India. After 1981, however, the rate of growth of Sikhs began to lag behind that of the Hindus and the total population; and, the share of Sikhs in the population of India began to slowly decline. Besides Punjab, the neigh­bouring state of Haryana accommodates about 6 per cent of the total population of the Sikhs. This, therefore, cannot be the reason for their declining share, at least in this region. The rate of growth of Sikhs outside Punjab has been merely 4.42 percent. The number of Sikhs and Hindus migrating out of India as a proportion of their population is probably not very different. 90% of all Sikhs in the world live in India.

Benchmarks . During the last decade of 2001-11, the gap between the growth of Sikhs and the rest of the population has become very wide and their share in India has now reached below their share of 1.74 percent recoded in the first Census after Independence and Partition. In the two decades since then, their share has declined by more than 5 percentage points, from 62.95 percent in 1991 to 57.69 percent in 2011. This contraction of a community that is religiously valuable and strategically sensitive ought to be a matter of serious concern. The 14 States listed here account for all but about 2.34 lakh Sikhs in the country. Earlier, Hooda had announced to carve out a separate Sikh gurdwara management committee for the Sikhs in Haryana. The spread of Sikhs beyond the Punjabi neighbourhood is not as big as is popularly believed; now the footprint of Sikhs across the country seems to be contracting. In Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, Sikhs had recorded fairly high growth during the previous decade of 1991-2001. Some impression of the limited presence of Sikhs outside Punjab can be had from the fact that the 2011 Census counts less than 3 thousand Sikhs in the huge metropolis of Chennai and about a thousand in Coimbatore.

In Jharkhand, their number has declined by more than 14 percent between 2001 and 2011; and their growth has been negative in all but two districts of the State.
