Future of National Population Register (NPR) in India


ADVERTISEMENTS


National Population Register (NPR) is one of the most anticipated Indian Government projects that are expected to deliver its real value in coming years. NPR comes with the idea to merge biometric and demographic details of Indian citizens onto a single electronic chip that can be accessed through all digital scanners (government will issue those scanners). Ultimate goal of NPR scheme is to form the basis of National Register of Indian Citizens (NRIC) which will act as online directory in coming years.

NPR Scheme Process

UPDATE:

We got few queries related to use of NPR in selected states. NPR card can be used anywhere where people want to showcase their identity. It can act on similar grounds of a Aadhar Card (although it should not be compared with Aadhar Card at all) and thus can be used in most of the cases. Marriage registration, passport, SIM etc can be few areas where NPR card should work without any issues. However please get in touch with respective officials for complete details.

Everything was going well and as expected. In initial phase of NPR scheme, it was decided to collect biometric details from UIDAI store (which they have collected during Aadhar Card Registration) whenever required. However Centre has recently passed Aadhar Bill is restricting Indian government resources to share biometric details of Indian citizens with any other portal. In an official statement, Centre has made it clear that National Population Registration scheme must not expect any sort of biometric data help from UIDAI. They won’t be able to share details now.

If this statement goes true then NPR might be in trouble and so will be Rs. 4800 crore that is already spent for this scheme. A total of Rs. 6600 crore was approved for NPR scheme out of which nearly 4800 crore rupees are already spent. Till now NPR has biometric details of around 280 million people only. These are the people who have registered biometrics through NPR organized camps only.


List of Documents for NPR Card

As discussed above, NPR was aiming at combining demographic details with biometric ones which would have outcome in a strong unique identification pattern that is hard to break for any migrant. It would have been the replacement for Birth Certificate, Ration Card, Aadhar Card even but without biometric details authorities won’t be able to do much on large scale. NPR database will act like a central repository where all the details (related to card) will be stored online.

Possible ways out

As of now we don’t see any clear possible ways to solve the disputes. However it would be best to come up with some amendments in Aadhar Bill that allows NPR authorities to use biometric details from UIDAI. If it is not feasible and government wants to move ahead with NPR scheme then they will have to collect biometrics on their own which will be too expensive to handle now. So the best possible solution will be to come up with some sort of amendments that can solve the disputed.

Stay tuned, we will keep you updated with latest news. Do let us know your views on future of NPR in India.

Talking a bit more about NPR scheme then it is rolled out to connect every individual’s detail with digital systems (that will be covered under Digital India scheme) that can be then used for forming new schemes, rolling out benefits etc that will be more relevant to people than ever before.

Many people confuses between Aadhar Card and NPR Card. Both tend to generate one unique identification number that will serve the purpose of unique identity, then what is the difference between both? Aadhar Card on one side have demographical, biometric and iris details embedded in the card but at the end it is a simple card (will explain the meaning of simple card later). On the other side NPR card will be a smart card and will come along a 64 Kb microprocessor chip that can be used for scanning it with any suitable electronic pads. Thus NPR card will reduce the manual effort in all the cases where you need to use your unique identification number issued by UIDAI.

I will suggest you to read this:
