New Delhi: The Government has sought general public’s cooperation in the ongoing census operations, and has pointed out that it is mandatory to share requested information with enumerators.
The feedback received from enumerators has indicated that there has been misconceived apprehensions in the minds of some people.
“In some of the cases, the enumerators are even not permitted to enter the households on some pretext or the other. This not only hinders the functioning of government servants in performing duties but also seriously hamper the progress of the unique exercise undertaken by the Government for the first time in the history of the nation,” said an MHA release on Monday.
“This is reiterated that it is mandatory on the part of each household to share information with the enumerator. This information, to be collected for the National Population Register only, will be highly confidential and will provide the spade work for formulating the policies and programmes by the Governments, both Central and State, for the betterment of the people of our huge nation,” it stated.
According to the Govt. release, each resident will get a unique ID card for the first time once the whole exercise in completed.
Under Census 2011, the First Phase of House listing and Housing Census along with collection of Data on National Population Register has commenced with effect from April 1, 2010 in a phased manner covering 29 States/Union Territories till May, 2010.
The remaining States are to be covered during June, 2010.
