People whose households are registered in Beijing who have violated family planning policies and had more babies than allowed can have a child's household registered in the capital without penalty when Beijing conducts its sixth census starting this November.

People with three kinds of certificates - ex-prisoners, the demobilized and the relocated - who are in line with household registration policies in Beijing, can also settle down in the capital during the census, the municipal government said on Wednesday.

The sixth nationwide population census will start in November and finish in June 2012.

Gu Yanzhou, deputy director of the Beijing Statistic Bureau, said local residents do not need to worry about the census revealing their personal information, as all the information can be used only for the population census.

"For instance, people who violated family planning policies can apply for household registration by taking the opportunities of the census," he said. "Also, we will not reveal such information to family planning departments to be the basis for fines," he said.

In China, excess births cannot be registered unless the parents received corresponding punishments, such as a fine.

But it has become a common practice to register the babies' households while the country conducts a massive census every 10 years, insiders said.
