60 per cent population covered on first day of 'Telangana Household Survey'
The 'Intensive Household Survey' across Telangana, aiming to ascertain the details of an estimated 84 lakh families living in the state is going on. At the end of the first day, 60% of Hyderabad's population had been surveyed and the municipal corporation chief declared that it would continue on 'another day.'

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao says that the survey was a hit. "This is a super hit survey. It has been successful beyond our expectations. This is an eye-opener for those who criticised (it). I sincerely and whole-heartedly thank all the employees and students for making the survey a big success," as reported by Deccan Chronical.

The main aim of the survey was to identify people who qualifies for state welfare schemes, so that the governmental schemes can reach the appropriate beneficiaries with availability of exact data through the survey.

In Hyderabad, only 60 per cent of the survey has been completed on the first day, but in some districts almost 90 per cent survey has been completed. About four lakh employees of Telangana, including teachers, students and policemen, were involved in the massive exercise.

The data collected till now, suggests that the population of Telangana may cross four crore, including the people who are residing out of the state. The estimated population of Hyderabad may cross 20 lakhs.

Since the time, KCR has announced about the survey, people staying in different parts of the country, rushed to there respective home towns to participate in the survey, which resulted in heavy rush to public transport buses and trains.
