President Patil enrolled under National Population Register
New Delhi, July 6 (ANI): President Pratibha Patil was enrolled under the National Population Register (NPR) at the Rashtrapati Bhavan here on Friday.
Speaking after her biometric enrollment, President Patil appealed to all residents to come forward and ensure their enrolment in the NPR.
The enrollment procedure took place in the presence of a team led by Union Home Secretary R.K. Singh, including Census Commissioner of India Dr. C. Chandramouli, Deputy Director General (NPR) S.K. Chakrabarti and the Director of Census Operation, Delhi, Varsha Joshi.
The demographic data for the creation of the NPR, which is a flagship scheme of the Government of India, was collected for the entire country during April to September 2010 through house-to-house enumeration.
The data has since been digitized and currently, biometric enrolment is in progress. Once collected, the NPR data along with biometrics would be sent to UIDAI for de-duplication and degeneration of UID numbers (Aadhar).
The government also proposed to issue resident identity (smart) cards under NPR. Registration in the NPR is mandatory for all usual residents of the country under the Citizenship Act 1955 and Citizenship Rules 2003. (ANI)
