National Population Register (NPR) - Assam


ADVERTISEMENTS


National Population Register also known as NPR is a National Level Scheme that is currently rolled out in 17 States and 2 Union Territories. Assam is one of those 17 states where Indian Government has decided to roll out NPR scheme on the first level. Record/detail gathering phase is already covered during Census 2011 and you don’t need to worry about this part. However there are few things that need to be discussed (that we will discuss here) for the complete NPR process in Assam.

How to register for National Population Register (NPR) in Assam

As I said above, most of the detail gathering part is covered during census itself. However you need to provide your biometric and iris scans at the NPR allocated centers. You can either submit these details in any of the two locally organized NPR camps in your area or in case you miss them then you can get your fingers, eyes scanned in the nearest NPR permanent allocation center.

This is a sample form that is exact replica of original form and will give you fair idea about what to fill in original NPR card. You can download NPR card from official website or can wait for officials to deliver it to your address.

Once you register for the NPR scheme, it will take around 1-2 months for generating the NPR card and getting it dispatched to your address.
