Hyderabad: Data from the intensive household survey, Samagra Kutumba Survey (SKS), is meant for officers and not for public use, the state government has told the Raj Bhavan Secretariat.
Congress former MP V. Hanumantha Rao on December 28 submitted a representation to Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan requesting that the survey data be made public or placed on the website of the BC Commission for use by the people.
Based on the representation, the Raj Bhavan Secretariat sent a file to the state government on the issue.
The law department and other departments concerned said the data could not be made public as there were two cases pending in court. The government stated that the data was for official use.
Mr Rao had said in his representation that only a third of the 27 per cent reservation actually reached the community. He said the survey data would help the BC Commission. He said the data could be used to demand developmental initiatives as per their population ratio as is done in Tamil Nadu.
