The Rohingya refugees are engaged in numerous civil disputes/conflicts for decades, giving rise to countless illustrations of Rohingya escaping from Myanmar. Last year, on 1st October 2018 the Indian government notified all states that they are required to assemble biometric data of Rohingya refugees for security purposes.
In December 2018, J&K began to collect the biometric data of Rohingya refugees with the aid of biometric devices to authenticate their identity & provide them with a refugee certificate.
The registration process was primarily carried out with the Biometric Fingerprint Device (MFS100), manufactured by the leading biometric device company, Mantra Softech (India) Pvt Ltd., based in Ahmedabad, India.

As per the reports, around 40,000 migrants are illicitly staying in Jammu & Kashmir, Assam and West Bengal. The Rohingya refugees are stateless as the Myanmar government dismissed citizenship to the Rohingya populace and are deemed as the massive stateless populace worldwide.
The idea behind executing the biometric registration procedure of Rohingya refugees is to identify the refugees/illegal migrants, who have migrated to India from Myanmar and are unlawfully residing anywhere across the nation.
Also, the Home Minister had said that "It is essential to obtain the personal details of refugees and their movements so the illegal immigrants can be deported to Myanmar."
