    Census 2011 is the 15th Census of India since 1872. Census 2011 was held in two phases. Provisional Population is arrived at by adding the Population as reported by each Enumerator for the Enumeration Block assigned to her/him. For the first time since Independence, the absolute increase in population is more in urban areas that in rural areas.
