Despite resolution against CAA, officers continue NPR exercise

Meanwhile, in the capital city GHMC is supervising the exercise in its designated areas whereas in other districts the supervision is under the District Collectorate.

Since officials are set to commence the house enumeration process starting April 1 which is a precursor to Census 2021 exercise, the citizens are demanding the government to stop the exercise.

Activist Kiran Vissa stated that the officials have been asked to collect details for NPR from citizens during the house enumeration exercise.

“This was a clever move directed by the Centre who asked the State governments in a circular to intertwine the house enumeration exercise with the NPR,” said Vissa urging the government to issue a GO to stop all NPR-related works.

Vissa, who is also a member of the Citizens Against CAA-NRC-NPR, in his statement earlier, had said, “A Government Order should be issued to its officials stating that NPR data collection will not be done along with the house-listing exercise of the Census 2021. In light of the directions issued by the Central government, this matter should be dealt with unambiguously and officially.”
