The above resource has been verified by ISC's Editor on what basis as in brief profile shows the number of total district in Madhya Pradesh is 61 and it's below 48 districts.

If I consider the above post is authentic then I am doing mistake and at this stage how I can refer other published information / data.

If the above resource has been verified by ISC Editors, which shows the editors is also not aware about Madhya Pradesh. This reflect the resources on this sites are how much authentic.

I would request to ISC's editors please avoid such type of mistake during approval of resources to avoid unnecessary confusion for visitors.

Hello, Virendra
First of all, thankyou very much for correcting me. But you should not go aggresive for this mistake. I am sorry if this information of mine caused you or any other visitor any sort of harm.
But just try to understand, that what's new today has to go old tomorrow. The data recorded in a particular census is always displayed in such profiles. The new census will come up again with new changes of the past decade. I will try to change my post by searching for the newest data. And please don't blame the editor for this, actually the webmaster of this site Sandy Sir has to serve as a site co-ordinator of IndiaStudyChannel and also has to take care of all other spider websites. Secondly he is busy with his own work, so such small mistakes are inevitable (unless you leave all your work and devote a 24/24 to such works.)

Instead of sorting out such little mistakes, please try to post a better resource about Madhya Pradesh Profile if you can. I really welcome such posts from you.
