In yester years, conducting cencus survey found simple as the population was less. Now adays, extra care should be taken while conducting cencus survey. Physical verification of Ration card/voter identity card is must.
Above all, since the problem of disguising/cheating people's roaming,people coming for cencus survey should posses Identity card and without hesitation, they should show the Identity card before conducting survey.
