District Collector M. Pallavi Baldev on Friday, inaugurated the 7th economic census in Theni - Allinagaram Municipality area. The census aims to document both organised and unorganised sectors of industries and manufacturing or service units.

A set of supervisors and surveyors have been selected for the census through the Common Service Centre. These personnel will go around every house and commercial establishment in the district and collect information about the various business activities.

The Collector said that the census reports from all the six municipalities, 22 town panchayats and 130 village panchayats, will be verified by supervisors and then secondary level supervisors, after which the reports will be sent to the National Statistical Office under the Central Government.
