February 15, 2020: Tripura will collect data as part of the national Population Register updation from May this year through mobile application, a senior official of the directorate of census operations said on Friday.



The data for NPR would be collected as part of the census operation in the north-eastern state.



The director of the census operations, PK Chakraborty said, "Deployment of around 11,000 people in a team would be done for the NRP mechanism. A part of the process has already been started. In the first phase, collection of the NPR data like the listing of house and housing census would start in Tripura from this May 16."



Of the 11,000 members, nearly 9062 would be enumerators followed by 1556 supervisors, nine principal census officers including other charge officers and additional charge officers.



Sixteen master trainers would train 169 field trainees from April 6 to 10 at Agartala.



Chief secretary of the state Manoj Kumar, also head of the Tripura State Level Census Coordination Committee, decided to collect data only through app though as per the Registrar General of India both mobile app and paper schedule can be used for the first phase of NPR data collection process, said the official.
