Executing NPR Project in Odisha, WB and Karnataka
NATIONAL POPULATION REGISTER
The National Population Register (NPR) is a comprehensive identity database to be maintained by the Registrar General, Census Commissioner of India & Government of India (RGI). The objective of the NPR is to create the identity database in the country with full identification and other bio-metric details of the person by registering every usual resident in the country. This would help in better targeting of the benefits and services under the Government schemes to improve NPR and prevent identity fraud.
We are responsible for 3 Centers in 3 states as an Enrolling Agency (EA) under RGI/ECIL and RGI/BEL as the Registrars.
