Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) chief Prakash Ambedkar on Monday said that the National Population Register (NPR) activity, which will be carried out by the central government was an “evil design”.

While talking to the reporters in Nagpur, Ambedkar described NPR as an evil plot focusing at taking out information about the caste and ideology of people in the country. 

The motive of the (central) government is to get caste and ideology information of every family. This is an evil design of Narendra Modi government, said Ambedkar. 

According to the government, the NPR contains a list of all “usual residents” who have lived at a locality for at least six months or plan to stay in that area for the coming six months or more. 

Earlier, the Modi cabinet had approved ₹3,900 crore funds for the updation of the NPR while another ₹8,700 were allocated for the Census exercise.

The NPR activity in the country is likely to begin from April this year. The data for the first NPR was collected in 2010 followed by a Census in 2011. 

In 2020, the NPR will be carried out along with the 2021 Census and the same was updated last in the year 2015 linked with Aadhaar.
