The district administration has requested the citizens to help the enumerators by providing them the required information like Aadhar no and Rashion card no.
Sources said that though the regular census is being already conducted from 2010 to 2011, but in the meantime the Directorate of Census conducts updating census register database time to time. The aim behind conducting such practices to have real check of the ground like how many new members have joined a family and how many have passes away. This is also a fact that such kind of drive does not make a major difference in the census figures.
