"We completed our countrywide census within the deadline of June 21. But we have extended the time until June 28 to include all the people of the four flood-hit districts," Dilder said.
Asked, he said, "We have circulated several emergency contact numbers in online platforms and through posters, so that they can call us and we can include them."
