President Pranab Mukherjee presented the Census Medals for extraordinary performance at a function in Vigyan Bhavan here on Friday.

The President congratulated all the Census Medal winners and said informed decision-making has to be based on empirical data and census is the only source of data that provides information on various individual characteristics right up to the village level for rural areas and the ward level for urban areas.

The President said census in India was a very challenging task in view of its multi-ethnic, multi-lingual and multi-cultural society.

Ever since the first Census of India after Independence, it has been the tradition with the Census Organisation to award silver and bronze medals and certificates of honour from the President to various census functionaries, including enumerators, supervisors, charge officers in recognition of their work.
