The caste census, a retrograde step, would not serve its proponents in near future as the data interpretation would take years well beyond 2014 elections, says Prof Ashish Bose, honorary professor at Institute of Economic Growth said.

“The census commissioner has no system that would help us decipher the thousands of caste, sub-caste names that would crop us between us,” Bose, an authority on census operation and analysis in the country, said speaking at the Sumitra Chishti memorial lecture on Thursday.
