Digital census will improve services: Shah
The Census 2021 will be a digital exercise and will open up the possibility of enhancing delivery of welfare schemes and services to the right beneficiaries, Union home minister Amit Shah said on Monday. The digital census can eliminate the need to maintain multiple documents, Shah said, adding that Aadhaar, voter, ID cards can come in one. He, however, made it clear that the government is not currently considering such a proposal.
Shah said the National Population Register would be updated alongside the Census 2021exercise.
