Vice President Mohammad Hamid Ansari was delivered his "Aadhaar Letter" by Dy. Director General (NPR) S.K. Chakrabarti here today.

Ansari was earlier enrolled under the National Population Register (NPR), the flagship scheme of the Government of India.

The Aadhaar letter of Mrs. Ansari was also delivered.

It may be recalled that the demographic data for the creation of NPR was collected for the entire country during April to September 2010 through house-to-house enumeration.

The data has since been digitised and currently, the biometric enrolment is in progress. Once collected, the NPR data along with biometrics would be sent to UIDAI for de-duplication and generation of UID numbers (Aadhar).

The government also proposes to issue Resident Identity (smart) Cards under NPR. Registration in the NPR is mandatory for all usual residents of the country under the Citizenship Act 1955 and Citizenship Rules 2003. (ANI)
