Whereas when it comes to vegetarian population, Rajasthan, Punjab, and Haryana fared at the top of the list.

The survey also revealed that the overall non-vegetarian population of India has dropped from 75 per cent 12 years back in in 2004 to 71 per cent in 2014.



 

While many might be shocked that 99 per cent of Telangana’s population is non-vegetation, experts say that meat consumption only reflects traditional eating habits of the state.

Experts also believe that the majority of the people who were surveyed for the state of Telangana could be from Hyderabad, which has a high percentage of meat-eaters.
