 Enumerator/ Supervisor Field Work 

Step by Step modifying /correcting NPR data booklet and filling up of new NPR schedule and other forms by the Enumerator during field work:

a)All the pages in the booklet are serially numbered. Ensure that the booklet containsall the pages with proper printing on each page. At the end of booklet, some blank
NPR schedules and summary sheets have also been provided. If any discrepancy isthere, immediately contact your supervisor/charge officer for rectifying the same.

b) The cover page of the booklet (Annex X) contains the Location Particulars of the HLB (2020) or new HLB number which has been allotted to you. Please confirmthat the NPR data booklet is of the same HLB for which you have to undertake the field work.

c) All the particulars like Names of State, District/ Tehsil/Taluk/ P.S./ Dev.Block/Circle/ Mandal, Town/Village with their respective codes will be pre-printed. The Ward
code, Household Block Number and Sub- Block Number and the Pin Code Number will also be pre-printed. The mobile number of the Enumerator is to be recorded on the cover page (Annex X)of the booklet.

d) The NPR updation will be undertaken through enquiries from the head of the household or any adult responsible member of the household. Choose the right respondent who is well informed, articulate and can provide the requisite information by herself/himself or after consulting other member(s) in thehousehold. While recording the information in the NPR Schedule, you are advised to involve as many members in the household as possible. You will find that the NPR data booklet and Schedule is simple and easy to understand, once you are conversant and familiar with it. The questions included in the NPR are self-explanatory and mainly deal with name of members of the household and their place of residence. Please remember that every member in thehousehold has different particulars and hence particulars of each and every
member of the household should be correctly ascertained and recorded.
e) The degree of accuracy in filling up of the NPR data during the enumeration largely depends on the interest taken by you in following the instructions contained in this manual.  You are, therefore, advised to go through these instructions more than once because total grasp of the terms used and absolutecommand over the system of entering answers to various questions  will form the foundation for systematic enumeration by modifying/correcting the entries in the booklet and canvassing of the NPR Schedule for new residents. This would also help you in avoiding pitfalls, duplication of efforts and unnecessary labour. In caseof any doubt, never hesitate to ask your Supervisor or the Charge Officer.
f) You have to only canvass the NPR booklet/new schedule in the households of your Houselisting Block(s) without omission or duplication. The next question iswho are eligible for
enumeration? The following persons are eligible to be enumerated in NPR:
i) Who are present in the household during the period of enumeration.
ii) Who are normal residents of the household and have stayed there for partof the enumeration period
iii) Who are normal residents of the household but are not present at the time ofyour visit and are expected to return back within the period of enumeration
g) Please note that visitors, domestic servants, tenants, drivers or other such person(s)who are found to be residing with the household and full fill the above three
criteria’s should be included in the enumeration. It is important that every personmale or female, aged or infant is counted only once, without omission orduplication.
h) NPR will not cover foreign nationals having diplomatic status. However, foreignnationals not enjoying diplomatic status and Indian nationals employed andstaying with them in  the Foreign Missions will have to be covered. It wouldtherefore, be necessary to cover every household found within your HouselistingBlock
