Using population provisional estimates from Census 2011, the number of people diagnosed for Diabetes in these nine states has been estimated as about 2 millions for the year 2011.  This is the minimal (lower bound) of the effected persons by Diabetes in these states of India.  On working backwards, one can say that Diabetes prevalence in these states is about 0.335% on the average.    Minimum Diabetes Burden in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar states cross one million persons and it is about 57% of the total burden of these nine states.
If one assumes the average prevalence rate of these nine states as the
prevalence rate in India, the minimum number of persons effected by this disease in India would be over 4 millions.
