The Centre has informed Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi that
caste enumeration would start in June next and completed in a phased
manner by September 2011.

"The enumeration of all castes will start from June 2011 and will be
completed in a phased manner by September 2011 keeping in view the
schedule of the general elections to be held in four states including
Tamil Nadu," Union home minister P Chidambaram has said.

In a letter to Karunanidhi dated October 29, which was released to the
media today, Chidambaram has said the Union cabinet on September 9 had
approved the group of ministers' recommendation on carrying out a
caste census.

Chidambaram was responding to a letter written by Karunanidhi to Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh in August, seeking to incorporate caste
details in the ongoing census process.
