Central Sector Scheme Agriculture Census

        The Govt. of India with the cooperation of States and Union Territory has been conducting Agricultural census in the country at five yearly intervals regularly since 1970-71,as a part of World Census of Agriculture undertaken by FAO of United Nation. This census provide valuable information about changing structure of Indian Agriculture, which is the backbone of Indian Economy.

         The Agriculture Census in India relies heavily on system of land records prevalent in large part of the country. In the non-land record state, the census data are collected through sample surveys. However in the case of U.T.of Lakshadweep; being group of islands and small in size, updated and comprehensive land records are not available, the Govt.of India always decide to conduct the census collecting information in all islands covering 100 % holding in every island / village through enquiry method.

         The latest in the series is the Seventh Agriculture Census with reference year 2000-2001 which is followed by an input survey 2001-2002 

The whole project of agricultural census is implemented in three distinct phases, which are statistically link together but focus on different aspects of agricultural statistics.  In phase-I a list of holdings with their area and social characteristics of the holders is prepared. In Phase-II detailed data on agricultural characteristics of holdings are collected from all islands.  In Phase-III.  data on input use pattern are collected from selected holdings in all islands.

         During phase-I viz; the listing phase, data on number and area of operational holdings according to prescribed size classes for different social groups and sex will be collected. During this Phase of census, data on basic agricultural infrastructure available in the islands is also proposed to be collected this year.  In Phase-II, which is the main census operation, the data on following five aspects will be collected.

i.        Dispersal of holdings.

ii.      Tenancy.

iii.     Land Utilization

iv.    Irrigation status and source wise area irrigated.

v.      Cropping pattern.

             By now the Census operation ie. Phase I & II of 7th Agriculture Census has been completed in all the islands. Scrutiny and checking of Schedules at field level have been completed and data entry for generation of Table-1 is in progress.
