Vanlalramsanga, Commissioner & Secretary, Planning & Programme Implementation Department, also released the annual publication – ‘Annual Report of Births & Deaths 2019’ on the occasion.
Vanlalramsanga advised the officer recruits to be careful in all their dealings since policy matters involve a lot of figures. He asked them to incorporate and weigh 3Vs – public value, government value and career values in their professional lives.
He pointed out that publications by governments are important documents which must be simplified by experts and be disseminated to the public so that they can understand it in simple parlance.
According to the publication during 2019 Mizoram recorded 23,808 births, 6606 deaths, 83 stillbirths; the Birth Rate was calculated as 18.05 and Death Rate as 5.01.
