This question already has an answer here:

When an jiva attains moksha, it leaves the earth and doesn't take any further birth.

So, by this process of attaining moksha, the number of souls on earth decrease.

But, in these days the population is increased, with greater number of souls.

My question is:

  • Does an atma after attaining moksha, returns to earth?

  • Eventually there will be no creatures on earth, as all of them reached the Paramatma?

  • Or the Paramatma creates new souls?
