Union Home Minister Amit Shah proposed the idea of a multipurpose identity card for citizens with all utilities like passport, Aadhaar, driving licence and bank accounts.

The minister also said the Census 2021 data will be collected through mobile app, a move that will be a big revolution in the country’s census exercise.

He added there should also be a system that when a person dies, the information is updated in the population data automatically.

Shah also said the data for the National Population Register (NPR), a list of usual residents of the country, will also be collected along with the census exercise.
