Union home minister Amit 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.
The census will have its reference date as March 1, 2021, but for snow-bound Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand it will be October 1, 2020.
The mammoth nationwide exercise will be carried out in 16 languages and at a cost of Rs 12,000 crore.
