A meeting of the State Level Coordination Committee (SLCC) for the 7th economic census was held at the Conference Room of the chief secretary on June 11, under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary, Temjen Toy, who is also the chairman of SLCC. 

The meeting discussed matters concerning payment of honorarium to the supervisors and enumerators and the logistic support on arrangement of manpower for implementation on the 7th Economic Census, DIPR reported. 

At the meeting, chief secretary urged the field officers not to take it as a routine thing but to give a true picture after enumeration is done. He also appealed to the field officers to have constant check and to work out a mechanism in monitoring every household.

Commissioner and secretary, Information Technology, K. D. Vizo, ITS while highlighting the conduct of the 7th Economic Census said that, Economic Census will be conducted covering all States and UTs in the country. The Economic Census is known to be one of the most complex and massive administrative exercises in which all establishments “whether households or non-households, big or small, in the private or public sector - would be enumerated, he said.

At the discussion hour, commissioner and secretary, Economic and Statistic, Kelei Zeliang said the payment of honorarium to the supervisors and enumerators fixed at Rs. 3 per household in the country should be increased to Rs. 10 per household due to the inconvenience faced by the supervisors and enumerators since Nagaland is a terrain area. 

He also added that the work would be carried out by three stakeholders, Common Service Centre, Department of Economics & Statistic and National Sample Survey Organisation (Field Operation Division).
