Centre postpones process of updating Census 2021, NPR

On account of coronavirus outbreak

by Natasha Nadkar

The process of updating the National Population Register (NPR) and the first phase of the Census 2021 has been postponed until further orders due to the coronavirus outbreak, according to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). Since the Census and NPR exercise require the enumerators to visit every household and meet people, it is not possible to carry out the exercise in the wake of the lockdown. The house listing and housing enumeration of the Census 2021 and NPR were slated to be carried out simultaneously from 1 April 2020 to 30 September 2020. Census 2021 was scheduled to be conducted in two phases, house listing and housing census during April-September 2020 and the second phase of population enumeration from 9-28 February 2021. The updation of NPR was proposed to be done along with the Phase I of Census 2021 in all the states and union territories except Assam.
