Government will spend Rs. 12,000 crore on 2021 Census
Shah also said that there should be a system that if a person dies, the information should be automatically updated in population data. He added that Rs. 12,000 crore will be spent on the 2021 Census, which will be the eighth one since independence.
Further, the Home Minister told that for the first time a National Population Register is being prepared.
"NPR will prove to be a game-changer. Digital census has many benefits. If a child takes birth and does not die up to the age of 18, shouldn't he or she be able to vote automatically without applying for a voter ID card," Shah said.
