We are trying to put a figure on total Bunt population in the World.
Here are some of our assumptions;
a. According to a survey conducted by Buntara Matra Sangha Mangalore in 2006-07, total Bunt population between Kasargod to Byndoor is Four Lakhs. This population is showing a negative growth in the recent past.
b. It is assumed/estimated that the Bunt population in rest of Karnataka (excluding Kasurgod and Undivided Dakshina Kannada) is around Two Lakhs
b. It is assumed/estimated that total Bunt population in Mumbai and its extended suburbs is between Three to Four Lakhs.
c. It is assumed/estimated that Bunt population in rest of India and in foreign countries could be around Two Lakhs
Thus we are of the view that it is safe to assume that the total Bunt population is around 12 Lakhs on the lower side and 15 Lakhs on the higher side.
We request our readers to send in their views on this.
