Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said that the census will see the implementation of modern technologies from the centre. Shah said the next census would be an ‘e-census’ which would shape the ‘policies for the next 25 years’. Amit Shah is on a two-day visit to Assam. He reached Assam late Sunday night. Amit Shah is in the state to inaugurate several projects on the first anniversary of the Himanta Biswa Sarma-led state government.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah along with Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla and Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma inaugurated and inspected the census building and dedicated the newly constructed buildings of SSB at Amingaon.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah at the inauguration of the Census Office in Amingaon said, “The Ministry of Home Affairs has decided to add modern technologies to make the census more scientific. Next census will be e-census, 100% accurate census. The next e-Census will shape the policies for the next 25 years. Me and my family will be the first to fill all the details online when the software is launched.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah said- “After birth, the details will be added to the census register and after he turns 18, the name will be included in the voter list and after death, the name will be deleted. Name/address change would be easy, it would all be connected. The birth and death register will be linked to the census. By 2024, every birth and death will be registered, which means our census will be updated automatically.”

Union Home Minister Amit Shah said, ‘Census plays an important role in policy making. Only the census can tell what is the status of development, what is the status of SCs and STs, and what kind of lifestyle people have in hills, cities and villages.”

Union Minister Amit Shah further said, “As soon as the outbreak of Corona subsides, the process of digital population census will start across the country. The digital census will be completed before 2024.” He further said, “PM Modi’s government is committed to this. The construction of National Population Building in Delhi will be completed by August this year.”

The Union Home Minister on Monday visited the Mankachar Border Outpost (BOP) and held talks with Border Security Force (BSF) officials. He also inaugurated the Central Store and Workshop of BSF and launched Khadi and Village Industries products at Tamulpur.
