Enumerator stated at 7 AM today and ended SAMAGRA KUTUMBA SURVEY at 10 PM covering all the households in the Telangana State for creating a reliable and accurate database in order to facilitate effective implementation of various Government programmes and to ensure that the benefits reach the eligible deserving people. In this regard, instructions were already issued to all the Collectors for completing the training programmes and preparatory works and the formats for the survey were already finalized by Department of Planning and Department of Rural Development.
Telangana CM thanked every Employee, Bankers, Telangana People for supporting Household Survey.
About 90 percent of nearly a crore households was covered under the survey in all districts of the state including Hyderabad.
Nearly four lakh government employees collected the details in door-to-door survey, which ended at 7 p.m. in the districts but is likely to continue till later in Hyderabad.
Terming the survey “historic” and a “super hit”, Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao thanked the people for their tremendous response despite the attempts by some quarters to create controversies and spread misinformation.
The chief minister told a news conference in the evening that the data would be compiled and computerized in 10 to 15 days and will be available from his office down to the office of a gram panchayat or a village.
Rao said the data would help the government in identifying the real beneficiaries of various welfare schemes, weeding out the bogus ones and also in better planning of its programmes to meet the requirement of the population.
“Statistics are key to success of any programme. The government itself was in dark about the population in Hyderabad. It was estimated to be 80 to 90 lakh but the survey shows that it has crossed 1.20 crore,” he said.
Thanking the government employees and college students for carrying out the survey without any remuneration, Rao, also the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief, said if people continue their cooperation, the government can realize the dream of “golden Telangana”.
