When would the figures of Census 2011 be published?
In response to an application seeking information about the population of transgenders in Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, the department of the Registrar General of India and Census Commissioner has provided the figures based on census 2001.
The department expressed its inability to provide fresh data about their population as the Census 2011 is yet to be published. The massive exercise of the 15th Census began on April 1, 2010 and some figures were released in April 2013 by the Home Minster. The census provides vital statistics and is used by the government apart from the private sector. It is not known what is stopping the compilation and publication of information.
