Online Himachal based news portal reported that recent census count of 2011 has not been conducted at some places in Himachal Pradesh, including some areas of the state capital Shimla and yet the final figures were published recently, and yet the Indian census department is patting itself for doing a good job.

Speaking to a cross section of people in Shimla including IAS officers and others living in posh areas of the capital many say nobody from the census department visited them last year.
