India’s once-in-a decade census was hit by the pandemic. Supposedly, it should have been recorded in 2021. However, there are no signs of any plans to record the census of India in the new future.
In less than two months, India will become the most populous country in the world. However, there is no census done till now, hence, no one is sure about the count of the population in India.
The census was due in 2021, but it was delayed by the pandemic. Now it is an herculean task for the government. It will take not less then a year to record the census. However, it is again hit by technical and logistics issues.
According to the experts, the delay in India census, the date regarding employment, housing literacy levels, migration patterns and infant mortality is missing. This in turn affects the economy of the country.
