CENSUS VS NO CONSENSUS ON CASTE

Census is a process of systematically collecting and recording information about the members of a given population.  It is regularly occurring and official count of a given population. The term is mostly used in connection with national population and other censuses like housing, agriculture, business and traffic. For the first time in India the Indian leaders are fervently debating on whether to include caste in the census or not. Everyone has a different view point on this issue as some say that it is beneficial as it can be used for better governance but some say that it might harm India’s notion and would the divide the Indian society. The census is said to be the largest source of statistical information on the uniqueness of the Indian people.
