Supreme Court Advocate, Shri. Bhupender Yadav’s presentation on the problems that come with the implementation of the Census of India and the National Population register.

By thus quoting a different Act, the Census can perhaps avoid the legal consequences of disclosing the individual information collected in a Census, but it cannot avoid the consequent loss of sanctity of the Census operations.
