Most of the detail gathering part is already covered during Census 2011. So you don’t need to worry much about carrying your certificates to prove identity, residence etc. However we will suggest you to collect all the required and basic documents like ration card, PAN card, Voter ID Card etc so that any hassle can be avoided.

National Population Register Bihar

Government will be organizing 2 registration camps in several identified areas (list will be given below). You can enroll in any of the camp. You will be required to send off your biometric and iris details in these centers. In case your details were not covered during Census 2011 then you can submit your other details in these camps as well. In case you miss both the camps, you can register yourself with this scheme in the permanent enrollment centers that are situated at district levels (sub districts in some cases).
