Deputy commissioner Dimapur and principal census officer Dimapur Maong Aier on Friday said unlike the last 2001 census, the ongoing census operation 2011 has so far been successful due to wide publicity and dissemination on census operation.
He said besides the role of state and district observers and community monitors, advertisement through posters, hoardings as well as public appeal made by state chief minister Neiphiu Rio and cooperation rendered by village chiefs and chairmen played a pivotal role at the ongoing phase II of census enumeration. He said this while on a visit to central jail and sub-jail in Dimapur along with census nodal officers to enumerate inmates for Census operation.
At central jail, the DC was greeted by inmates who were in their best of behaviour and patiently listened to him as he highlighted on the census enumeration and the importance of providing accurate information.

Observing that both the central and sub-jail has recreational facilities and Churches for inmates, DC called upon the convicts to consider the detention center as a reformation centre and be reformed after their sentence has expired.

Altogether there are 40 inmates at sub-jail, which include 12 females and 28 males. Three of the convicts are serving sentence for more than 20 years.
In central jail there are 247 inmates, out of whom 136 are under trial, and number of National Security Act (NSA) detenues numbering 43. A 28 year old male with disability was also enumerated.
Besides national workers, some NSA detenues are from places as far as UP, Bihar, Tripura, Bengal, Assam and Manipur. Although they belong to other states, they were arrested for crime committed in Dimapur and detained in central jail Dimapur.
The DC was accompanied by CEO, DMC and town census charge officer Nikashe Sumi, EAC andcensus charge officer Dimapur Sadar Dr. Tino Jongshi Chang and EAC Chumukedima & charge officer Henok Bumchen Phom.
