Memon Census Team
The Memon Census Team, lead by Mr. Shoaib Ghaziani, Chairman,
Memon Census Committee, has many members from various Jamats and Organizations.
The Memon census work has been accelerated as a separate department and is established
within WMOPC and full time employees have been employed for distributing Census
Forms, collection and recording in the computer software.
Memon Census Software
A comprehensive software has been designed for Memon Census
work, and all data is being recorded in the software. This software (after the
minor modification) will be provided to all Memon Jamats of Pakistan for regular
updation of Memon census. This offer is also vaild for all chapters of WMO.
Availability of Forms
Printed Census Forms are available from the offices of WMOPC,
APMF and Offices of other Memon Jamats. Besides, the Census Form has also been
put on our website (www.wmopc.com).
The members of the Memon Community can download a printable
form, fill-in the detail and submit it to the office. In the near future, we will
provide the option to fill-in the form online.
We have already recorded 21,882 forms (vis-à-vis
the population of 101,681 persons) collected from different sources.
Overall, we have collected 23011 forms.
1129 forms are in hand for data feeding.
According to our estimate, the census work completed is hardly
23% of the Memon
Community residing in Pakistan. The work is moving in the right direction and
we hope to complete sizable part of the census by the end of 2009.
We thank those Memon Jamats who have made it compulsory
to fill-in the census forms for availing any benefit from the Jamat.
Memon Census Camps
We arranged many Memon Census Camps at various places in
Karachi such as:
1. Federal B Area
2. Many Schools
3. Muslim Gymkhana
4. Large Apartment in habited by Memons
5. Clinics and Hospitals
We contact many schools where Memon students are studying,
and distributed the forms to their students. Mostly schools administrators co-operate
with us and help us to get fill-in forms from students.
We intend to arrange more such camps in future at places
like Karachi Gymkhana, Karachi Club, Dreamworld Resort etc. We are going to arrange
a Mega Memon Census Event in the month of July 2008. In this
event we will target Karachi, Sukkur and Hyderabad for distribution & Collection
of Forms. We will get help from TV Cable Services, Mobile SMS, Banners, Hand Bills
and other media. This practice will help us for creating awarness about Memon
Census as well as collection of Forms.
