Rabindra Dhungel, 19 september 2020. How much time do you spend on mobile phones? If many were asked the question, what would be the answer? The common man will answer one hour a day.
Lately, the whole world is connected to smart phones, so there is a large number of people who spend their days on mobile phones.
The number of people using social media on their phones for a long time is increasing.
But it can also cause health problems. But for the last time in India, a survey has been started – how much time do you spend on mobile phones? Such surveys are being conducted to help in the formulation of state policy.
Such a survey has been started with the aim of keeping the citizens unemployed and busy them in some way. In Nepal, however, no such survey has been conducted so far.
The process has been started with the analysis that such a survey can find out the aspirations of the citizens and its impact on policy making. In Nepal, however, no such survey has been conducted so far.
In India, not only that, you have to ask the citizens about how much time you spend chatting or how much time you spend chatting with friends and relatives. Not only that, how much time do you sleep at night? Such questions will be asked.
This is the first time such a survey has been launched in India. All citizens of lower, middle and upper class above 6 years of age will be included in the survey.
The work of such survey will start from next December in 10,000 cities and rural areas across the country. It is believed that the results will help in policy making after it becomes public.
Such a survey will be conducted by the National Sample Survey Office of India. The survey team will go from house to house and ask the citizens how long do you use mobile phones? How long do you sleep And how much time do you spend on gossip?
How much time do you spend on mobile phones, movies, TV and how much time do you spend sleeping? Such children and youth will be asked, how much time do you play?
Students will be asked, how much time will you focus on reading? How much time do women spend on household chores and how much time do you spend with friends and relatives? How much time do you work for traders, workers, government and non-government employees? And what will be your first priority at work? Similarly, questions are being prepared about health and social services.
This type of survey is conducted in more than 100 countries around the world. Such surveys are conducted to find out how time is spent and to prepare state policy and other legal basis from it.
