The Indian NGO sector is the largest in the world, data suggests. According to a multiphase study undertaken by the Central Statistical Organisation in 2009, India has about 3.3 million NGOs. The final phase of this study in 2012 provided employment details for the sector – about 18.2 million people were employed by the 2.2 million NGOs visited as part of the study.
Social services (37 percent), education and research (24 percent), and culture and recreation (15 percent) accounted for about 76 percent of all activities undertaken by these 2.2 million NGOs. However, the sector was highly male-dominated, with 72 percent men.
