According to a report published in the Toronto Star, 70% of Indians live in villages, and they do not have access to basic utilities, and they are dependent on manual labor. On the other hand, India is one of the biggest importer of military weapons. India is also demanding a permanent seat in UN Security Council with all the power given to the permanent members. With these socioeconomic indexes, does India really deserve such a status in the wold body?

That's similar to China... If China has a seat in the SC then India should get one.

What about Australia, Canada and Germany, don't they deserve permanent seat in the SC?

Do you mean population? Population shouldn't be a createria for SC's membership. The criteria should be how much you take world responsibilities.

Depending how you look at it.Their economy is bigger than Russia. And they are probably going to overtake China with the having the most amount of people. They also got the nuclear bomb and their army is exceptionally big.

Canada and Australia are dwarfs compared to Germany and India.

No they don't deserve permanent seats, it would just become an American club. Actually the only ones who deserve seats are military powers, and that would be the US, Russia, China, and Britain. That's enough members...although India might be a good balancing power. At one time France was independent, but those days are long gone, now it's just another American serf. I say kick France out and put in India.

India won't be a good choice as it would furstrate its neigbors. India already lots of issues with its neighboring countries. I would say keep it as it is. The US, Russia, China and Britain are good enough.

China, People Republic aside all UNSC members with a permanent seat got their status as the winners of WWII and founders of the UN. The PRC got her UNSC permanent seat as "successor" of the Nationalist China whose government was exiled on the Taiwan island after the communist takeover of mainland China.
I laugh loudly at all the countries - like India, Japan, Germany, Brazil, etc. - asking for a free great power status without paying the price associated with it!
The best & most sensible proposal to reform the UNSC was the one proposed by Italy in 1994. Otherwise, we are struck with the status quo and the one wishing to have a great power status with veto power must change it as usual, by winning a systemic war between old & new international powers. Anyone could see that the latter choice is worst than the former.

India is a big country with a huge population, but when it comes to the nation trying to exert its power, that huge population is as much a hindrance as it is an asset.
There are just so many poor people in India, the country will never be able to afford a modern military force to match its size. It is a matter of priorities, and India is just struggling to feed the people it already has.

Like China, India is a country that is somewhat of a paradox. Culturally it has a strong Western influence (from former British colonization), politically it is a "free" democracy, and within the last 20 years a middle class has been rapidly growing in Indian society. But it is still considered a "Third World" country, there is still widespread poverty and the standard of living is much lower than it is elsewhere. So it has all the institutions in place of a modern developed country, but economically in is still struggling to advance from a backwards state.

There are boundary problems between China and India, but they trust Putin so they are able to work together. The main problem would be Pakistan, so you are right. I don't know how they would be able to put a new member in the security council without others going ballistic.

I would say, India is a power in its own borders. Otherwise, India has serious issues with Pakistan. For the last 60 years they are fighting on disputed Kashmir region. UN has asked to organize plebiscite in Kashmir and ask people of Kashmir which country they want to join. India and China has serious issues on Hamachal Pardesh area. Sri Lanka has also concerns with India in proking militant groups in Sri Lanka. India is our good ally but not suitable for SC seat.

I never said it was, I just answered a question about India being a regional power. It is. It is ranked 4th in the world when it comes to the military.

Their economy is bigger than Russia.

Actually Russia has a slightly higher GDP than India. India may have 15 times more people than Russia, but the majority of those people are very poor.

Inspite of some development in IT, and lots of IT companies are having their offices in India. But poverty and population are two indexes where India collapses.

Poverty rate is very high in India.
