NPR: house to house verification planned--The Hindu-27-12-2019-Page-01
The National Population Register (NPR) is a register of the usual residents of the country.
It contains information collected at the local (village/sub-town), sub district, district, state and national level under provisions of the Citizenship Act, 1955 and the Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and Issue of National Identity Cards) Rules, 2003.
The process of updating NPR will be carried out under the aegis of the Registrar General and ex-Officio Census Commissioner, India.
Who is Usual Resident of India?
A usual resident is defined, for the purposes of the NPR, as a person who has resided in a local area for the past six months or more, or a person who intends to reside in that area for the next six months.
