NPR project:

The National Population Register (NPR) is a comprehensive identity database to be maintained by the Registrar General and Census Commissioner of India, Ministry of Home Affairs, and Government of India (RGI).

Data Digitization for NPR: At a time when information and data are becoming an integral part of every organization, people have realized that paper records, books, and journals are not as handy or safe as CD- ROMs. Information must be stored in such media that the storage is safe and the retrieval is quick. The age of Data Digitization has begun.

Digitization is the process by which physical or manual records such as text, images etc. are converted into digital forms. This is of paramount importance when projects need directions based on already established facilities and the implementing agency needs to find the scope for expansion. We have to make data entry of the scanned images which were provided to us by RGI through NIELIT - Formerly DOEACC, Aurangabad in the software . We have to make the data entry at block level in the software.
