  • For Census 2011, the population of “Others” has been clubbed with the “Males” for working out population, 0-6 population, literates and related rates and ratios.
  • Rural Urban Areas: The data in the table on Final Population Totals are presented separately for rural and urban areas. The unit of classification in this regard is ‘town’ for urban areas and ‘village’ for rural areas. In the Census of India 2011, the definition of urban area adopted is as follows:
    (a) All statutory places with a municipality, corporation, cantonment board or notified town area committee, etc.
    (b) A place satisfying the following three criteria simultaneously:

    1. a minimum population of 5,000;
    2. at least 75 per cent of male working population engaged in non-agricultural pursuits; and
    3. a density of population of at least 400 per sq. km. (1,000 per sq. mile).

For identification of places which would qualify to be classified as ‘urban’ all villages, which, as per the 2001 Census had a population of 4,000 and above, a population density of 400 persons per sq. km. and having at least 75 per cent of male working population engaged in non-agricultural activity were considered. An area is considered ‘Rural’ if it is not classified as ‘Urban’ as per the above definition.* The area figure exclude 78,114 sq. km. under the illegal occupation of Pakistan, 5,180 sq. km. Illegally handed over by Pakistan to China and 37,555 sq.km. under the illegal occupation of China in Ladakh district.Source: Census of India 2011
