The Manohar Lal Khattar government has decided to gather a detailed data of every resident and issue a sleek identity for every house in Haryana. The objective of this two-month long data generating exercise, to be launched on June 15, is to get details of land holdings and status of facilities such as social security pension, scholarship, MGNREGA, loans and LPG connection.

Chief secretary DS Dhesi directed all deputy commCs to complete the task in a time-bound manner.

During the survey, address of each house, photo, location, details of owner of the house, electricity connection, water connection, details of electronic devices, bank account numbers, IFSC code and Aadhaar and personal details such as mobile number, e-mail ID, educational qualification, religion and other details will be gathered.

The data will be used to make sure that benefits of 150 services of 87 departments are provided online, a government spokesperson said.

During the survey, bank accounts will be opened of those who do not have one and Aadhaar cards will be made of the left out population.

The government claimed that it is for the first time that such a big campaign is being initiated in the state. This real time-based survey will be conducted to gather socio-economic data by the teams of ‘Saksham and e-Numerator’ who will visit houses to feed their GPS location in their tablets, create smart house IDs online and link each house with biometric.

A district control room will be set up at the mini-secretariat and people will be made aware about the survey through schools, sarpanches and councillors.
