Random verification of caste census in City

Random verification of caste census in City

Random cross-verification of the data collected during the socio-economic survey (caste census) will be done in the Bengaluru region before releasing the findings of the survey.

Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru, Social Welfare Minister H Anjaneya said the verification process will be done to check the authenticity of the data collected during the survey.

The verification process will be confined only to Bengaluru as there were some complaints regarding the manner in which the enumerators collected data.

Census block
One census block in each of the assembly constituencies in Bengaluru would be randomly selected for the verification process, he said.

The survey process in Bengaluru had to be extended five times as enumerators could not cover the 26.3 lakh households on time.

Fee reimbursement
Anjaneya said that professional colleges have been directed not to collect fees from SC/ST students during admissions. The State government will reimburse the entire fee amount of such students to colleges.

“We will initiate action against colleges which harass SC/ST students by insisting that the fees will have to be paid during admissions,” the minister said.

Anjaneya said the government was taking steps to ensure no SC/ST student is denied hostel facility across the State.

The finance department has given its nod for filling vacant posts in the Social Welfare department, he said.
