March 3, 2023 11:55 PM
Following the numerous requests from the masses, the federal government has extended the date for self-enumeration by seven days (March 10) as part of census 2023.
According to the 24NewsHD TV channel, the development comes days after Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) objected to the time allotted for carrying out the census while calling for extending the time specified for the three phases of self-enumeration, house enumeration, and census.
According to the sources, the decision to extend the date for the self-enumeration of the country's first digital census — which was initially scheduled to end tonight (March 3) at 12 am — was taken during the relevant committee’s meeting. The date has been extended keeping in view the convenience of the people, they added.
They added that the authorities are also mulling over extending it beyond a week. “The website is also down repeatedly as a lot of people are accessing it.”
"Till now, eight million people have self-enumerated themselves. The process of self-enumeration began on February 20," they hinted.
