NPR data helps identify the demographics profile of actual residents who will be direct beneficiaries of any schemes launched in the area that CENSUS data can’t do. The NPR data will help government design and adapt schemes like Ayushman Bharat, Jandhan Yojna, or medium of instruction in schools as per the current demographics, thus making the schemes more effective. In order to avoid duplication, save costs and allow interoperability, a standard database covering the entire population is an urgent necessity. In this circumstances, the Govt. of India has decided to canvass a separate schedule for collection of all information for the creation of NPR rather than extracting information from Census Schedules for this purpose.
