Census is a very exciting and challenging exercise and census 2011 is going to be very serious and one of the most crucial exercises at the time when the country is on the process of preparing the National Population Register, said director of census operation Nagaland, V. Hekali Zhimomi.
“This is the most crucial census exercise …. there should be no rooms for mistake” Hekali said while addressing the one day district level training for the Census 2011 Charge Officers on House listing and Housing Census held at the DC conference hall Tuesday.
She said there would be less inequality if there were fewer mistakes and stressed on the necessity for census 2011 to be accurate, successful and complete.
Pointing out that 2001 census of the state drew lot of flak, Hekali said census 2011 should establish the credibility of the state. She urged the gathering charge officers to be more sincere and committed from the very beginning. She advised them to attend training of the master trainer and enumerator and also to try and avoid any confrontation on political use and misuse but to concentrate on socio-economic point of view while carrying out the exercise.
Census is basically an exercise of actual head counting, she said and stressed that right enumerator should be appointed and they should be fit for performing the job. She further warned that time schedule should not be compromised.
She said accurate census was very much required for proper planning of overall development. She also revealed that the exercise for Census 2011 would be carried out in two phases with the first phase from June 1 to July 15 through house listing and house census and the second phase from 9th February 9 - 28, 2011 when the actual head count would be conducted. This would be followed by Revision round from March 1 - 5, 2011.
Earlier, deputy commissioner Kohima Bei-u Angami, who is also the Principal Census Officer in his address pointed out that the state had committed a “big mistake” in 2001 Census which have to be corrected now in census 2011. He reminded that the entire exercise of Census 2011 would be directly supervised by the chief minister himself and also directly involve Hohos, Churches, students’ bodies and NGOs.
In this regard, he warned the Charge officers present that there would be no escape for any mistake as many people would be watching their activities. “Any mistake, you’ll be held responsible and no one will come to your rescue,” he warned.
