Ahmedabad: The over month-long socio-
economic and caste Census in Gujarat got underway on Monday.

Chief Minister Narendra Modi launched the survey at his
residence in Gandhinagar where enumerators were present.
The exercise`s objective is to rank households based on
their socio-economic status to enable preparation of the
list of families living below the poverty line.

It also aims to generate authentic caste-wise population
information.
The survey will be held across the state till February

"It is everybody`s duty and right to provide correct
and complete information about the household. Every individual
should provide full details," Modi said.
