The next decennial census of India introducing the new system, National Population Register (NPR) will begin from June 1 in Manipur, with a two months delay to that of the country’s scheduled commencement.
The deputy commissioners of all districts of Manipur will take the main role in the census operation and have been given the training on NPR in a training programme recently concluded at New Delhi under the aegis of Registrar General of India.
The training was conducted from March 3 to 5, director of Census Operation Manipur, Y Thamkishore, IAS said in an interaction with this correspondent on Friday.
Preparation for training on NPR to SDCs and SDOs of all the districts has been completed, he said.
The first phase of the census operation in Manipur will begin from June 1 and the second phase is scheduled to commence from February 1, 2011. The authorities are targeting to publish the provisional figure of the census by April or May, 2011. The exercise was scheduled to start from May 15 next but it was postponed till June 1 considering the scheduled elections to the Autonomous (Hills) District Council.
Mention may be made that government of India had announced that the NPR exercise will involve 35 states, 640 districts, 5,767 tehsils, 7,742 towns, 6,08,786 villages, 24 crore households and 1.2 billion population. Over 2.5 million field functionaries will be involved with the exercise.
To ensure complete coverage, the entire country is divided into small enumeration blocks within the framework of respective administrative units of the states and the union territories.
The work of demarcation of these enumeration blocks had been taken up well in advance of the houselisting operations as the Census maps are to be prepared accordingly to obviate any overlapping or omission of area.
