Hi. I wish to circulate the information regarding the Census of India 2021. Few days back, the Chhattisgarh Association of the Deaf informed me about the letter it received from Government regarding feedback for improvement. I recommended the Association to reply and send the feedback to the Census office with CC to NAD and other NAD-affiliated Associations.
After deciding that NAD will write to the Census office, I am planning to recommend the following points:
1) To include "Indian Sign language (ISL)" as one of the options for the Mother Tongue.
2) To have two sub-categories under “Hearing”
(b) Hard of Hearing
This is as per the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2016.
3) The Government to give awareness training for all enumerators of the Census of india 2021.
If you have any better suggestions, please e-mail to email@example.com upto April 11th, 2021 at 5 pm.
Thank you for watching.
