Planning Commission Extends Time for Demographic Enumeration

April 29, 2009

April 27, 2009

Dharamshala -- The Planning Commission of the
exile Tibetan government said the three-day
demographic survey it conducted on April 12 might
have missed out “quite a few Tibetans owing to a
highly mobile and scattered nature of residences
of many Tibetans.” The commission said, “Keeping
in view of that situation, we are providing a
special consideration for enumeration of those
who could not be available on those three days."

Dr. Kunchok Tsundue, Chief Planning Officer said,
"the preliminary reports from the settlements
suggest that the Survey has been a success and it
is all due to the hard work of the settlement
officers and the thousands of enumerators on the
field.” He added that the Tibetan people all over
have also co-operated well with this effort of the CTA.

Keeping in view of the importance of this Survey
and in order to make sure that the survey covers
as many Tibetans in exile as possible, the office
of the Planning Commission is requesting to
register themselves before 5PM, 30th May, 2009 at
1) South Zone Office, Bangalore. or 2) Tibetan
Welfare Office, Delhi or 3) Planning Commission,
Dharamshala or 4) Tibetan welfare office,
Lazimpat Nepal. A notice to this effect has
already been sent to all the settlement offices.
