Biju Janata Dal MP Pinaki Mishra said on Tuesday that the NPR in Odisha will not have a question on the birthplace of the parents of the residents and will have an additional question on other backward classes (OBCs) in the state. He added that the Central government has already clarified that replying to question on the birth of one’s parents was optional. The NPR is being updated across the country from April 2020 to September 2020. Kerala and West Bengal have already announced that they will not update the NPR whereas Punjab will not seek an answer to the question on the birthplace of parents.
