Census to go digital

Census to go digital

  • Context: The Centre has announced that the forthcoming census will be the first digital census.
  • A mobile app for the collection of data and a census portal for management and monitoring of various census related activities have been developed.
  • The portal will require the mobile phone numbers and other details of individuals for logging in and in the case of self-enumeration, an individual will have to fill in the required details with the help of relevant codes for each field.
  • After self-enumeration, an identification number will be sent on the registered number provided by the individual which can be shared with the enumerator to help officials sync the data automatically.
  • The individual data collected in Census under the Census Act, 1948 are not made public as per the provisions contained in the Act and will not be used for the preparation of any other databases such as the National Register of Citizens.
