The seventh Economic Census, 2019 under the aegis of the Union statistics ministry and in collaboration with CSC e-Governance Service India Limited was launched at Civil Secretariat Kohima by IT & C and power principal secretary KD Vizo.

In his address, Vizo said the economic census was a census of Indian economy through counting of all entrepreneurial units in the country that were involved in any economic activity. All household establishments engaged in non-agricultural economic activities, including construction, except public administration, defence and compulsory social security, were proposed to be covered under the economic census.

He said the common service centre (CSC), in partnership with the Union ministry of statistics and programme implementation (MoSPI) had been tasked with the responsibility of data collection and related activities for implementing the census. He said MoSPI would use IT-based mobile application for data collection verification and supervision and CSC would be an active partner in this endeavour.

Mentioning that today was an era of knowledge economy where having good data was important, the principal secretary remarked that the strength and relevance of a country or a State depended on the quality of data it has because henceforth every transaction would now be made online for accurate transaction. 

In this regard, he said the IT & C and economics and statistics department would ensure accurate and authentic data so that the correct economic status of the State got reflected.

As the data collected would be useful for every section of the society in future, he urged general citizens to extend full cooperation towards the economic census. The programme was chaired by economics & statistics commissioner & secretary Kelei Zeliang.

The census was launched simultaneously across seven districts by their respective DCs, while the census will commence in the remaining three districts of Dimapur, Mokokchung and Peren in the first week of September. The CSC has engaged 1,252 enumerators and 305 supervisors, all of whom have undergone training for carrying out the task in the field. 

They will be covering 2,264 enumeration areas – 1,481 rural and 783 urban areas.

This was stated in a press release by Kepelhoutuonuo and T Tsuthong.
