NPR: Khanday for mass awareness
Jammu, Apr 10: Chief Secretary Muhammad Iqbal Khanday Wednesday called for creating mass awareness about the National Population Register (NPR) project.
Chief Secretary was speaking while chairing a high level meeting convened to discuss various administrative measures to be adopted by the State Government for the 2nd phase of National Population Register. He said that the exercise, besides creating a national identity database by registering all citizens of the country, would also help in streamlining delivery of services and benefits under various government schemes and welfare programmes to the targeted population.
NPR will be an exhaustive database, listing all residents of the state with full information about the district, Tehsil, block, village, and household.
During the second phase of the NPR project, camps would be organized to collect Photographic/biometric information across the state- which forms the part of prestigious project of creating population register of the state, an official spokesman said.
He said the meeting discussed issues pertaining to deployment of officers for the exercise as enumerators, supervisors and Incharge officers, besides the interdepartmental logistical support to be provided during the exercise. “Naib-Tehsildars, Executive officers and ward officers of Municipal areas have been designated as Local Registrars of Citizen Registration to monitor the entire process. To ensure achievement of 100% targets during the implementation phase, Panches and Sarpanches will also be associated with the exercise,” the spokesman added.
