The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport -

The Cen­sus 2021 will be a dig­i­tal ex­er­cise and will open up the pos­si­bil­ity of en­hanc­ing de­liv­ery of wel­fare schemes and ser­vices to the right ben­e­fi­cia­ries, Union home min­is­ter Amit Shah said on Mon­day. The dig­i­tal cen­sus can elim­i­nate the need to main­tain mul­ti­ple doc­u­ments, Shah said, adding that Aad­haar, voter, ID cards can come in one. He, how­ever, made it clear that the gov­ern­ment is not cur­rently con­sid­er­ing such a pro­posal.

Shah said the Na­tional Pop­u­la­tion Reg­is­ter would be up­dated along­side the Cen­sus 2021ex­er­cise.
