Life in Telangana may come to a standstill on Tuesday with the Government conducting a massive household survey across the newly-formed State to ascertain comprehensive information on the citizens, an exercise which has attracted criticism from certain quarters.
The “Intensive Household Survey”, being compared with the General Elections in size, would cover an estimated 84 lakh families living in Telangana, involving about four lakh Government employees, including police personnel and teachers,
a press release issued earlier said.
Refuting allegations that the survey is aimed at identifying Seemandhra natives, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has said that the exercise is intended to ensure that benefits of Government schemes reached the targeted sections.
