As The national wide census 2011 has already begun from 1st April 2010. The Census of India 2011 is being conducted in two phases, namely i) Houselisting and Housing Census and ii) Population Enumeration. The census 2011 will help decide number of BPL people in 2013. If anyone fails to get into the databank he will be out of UIDAI which is an indirect proof of ‘citizenship’ for every individual.

Hence ASSOCIATION OF MUSLIM PROFESSIONALS (AMP) appeals to all Citizens in General and Muslims in Particular to actively involve themselves in the Process of the CENSUS 2011 as it is very important owing to its linkage to NPR, Unique Ids, BPL Data, and National Identity Card.

Each and every household will be given an Acknowledgement Slip at the time of enumeration which has to be saved carefully for further use. Biometrics such as photograph, 10 fingerprints and probably Iris information will be added for all persons aged 15 years and above. Details such as Name, Date of Birth, Sex, Present Address, Permanent Address, Names of Father, Mother and Spouse etc will be gathered by visiting each and every household. Each household will be required to bring the Acknowledgement Slip to camps arranged at every village and at the ward level. Those who miss these camps will be given the opportunity to present themselves at permanent NPR Centres to be set up at the Tehsil/Town level.

The National Population Register (NPR) would have the data of every person enumerated during the Census operations irrespective of age. It would also have the biometric data and UID Number of every person of age 15 years and above. National Identity Cards will be given in a phased manner to all usual residents by the Office of the Registrar General and Census Commissioner, India.

What am I supposed to do?

  • Be Present at the Time of the Visit of the Enumerator
  • Give Clear answers for all listed questions
  • Do not UNDERSTATE or OVERSTATE things
  • Ensure if the data provided is properly entered
  • Sign the Sheet after verifying the data,
  • Receive the acknowledgment slip and save it
  • When announced those with 15 years and above Visit the Biometric data collection Camps along with the acknowledgment slip and enroll yourself in the NPR Biometric Data Register.

Whom do I contact in case my house is not covered?

The local Tehsildar/Ward Officer of your area is the designated officer. In case of need you can also contact the Collector/DC/DM of your District or the Commissioner of your Town. You can also intimate Census officials over email or contact them over the toll free number given in this website ( http://www.censusindia.gov.in).

How do I ensure that the information given by me is being correctly entered?
