National Population Register (NPR) will be the biggest biometric database — including face, fingerprint and iris recognition of the over 1 billion Indian population — that has ever been made. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has been established by the government to implement the scheme and assign unique numbers to all citizens.

National Population Register Household schedule contained 9 questions.

Name of the person and resident status
Name of the person as should appear in the population register
Relationship to head
Date of birth
Marital status
Educational qualification
Names of father, mother and spouse

Once the information will be collected and digitalised, fingerprints and photos will be collected. Unique Identification Authority of India will issue a 12-digit identification number to all individuals and the first ID is expected to be issued in 2011.
