With the first phase of Census coming to an end on June 15, Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) today said, it will come up with a helpline number to assist people to register themselves for census.

The civic body said 62 per cent of the census work has been completed.

We are hoping to complete the remaining work as per the deadline, Additional Municipal Commissioner Manisha Mhaiskar said.

The first phase of the 15th National Census began with the house listing and housing census started from May 1 and will end on June 15.

With the first phase of Census to be completed by June 15, enumerators have found more than 10 per cent houses locked. Around 27,248 enumerators are surveying an average of 150 households each, Mhaiskar said.

"We will come up with a helpline number on June 14 at all 24 wards. All those who have not registered themselves for Census, the helpline number will be useful, wherein they can drop their contact details and the enumerator will visit them," Mhaiskar said.

MCGM today said the response to the census has been good. "Those leaving in slums are more excited about it as they would be entitled to various schemes," Mhaiskar said.
