Union cabinet approves caste census

The Union Cabinet on Thursday decidede to hold a caste-wise headcount, the first since 1931, which will be conducted from June-September in 2011 after the regular enumeration is over.

The Government has taken into account the possibility of claims being exaggerated and has planned to tally the results of the caste-wise count with the findings of the regular census as well as the details of the National Population Register (NPR) prepared on the basis of household surveys which have already been completed.

The office of the Registrar-General and Census Commissioner will conduct the field operations for caste enumeration.
