Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

We have re-calculated the rates that you refer to in Table 7.2 of the NFHS-5 final report and can confirm that they are correct as published. You may have reversed the codes for v025, which are 1 for urban and 2 for rural. Thank you for using DHS data.

I want to calculate the Neonatal mortality rate (NMR) and other child mortality indicator (IMR, CMR & U5MR) from Indian DHS-5 (2019-21) using Synethtic cohort method in STATA software.
I want to replicate the value of NMR same as NFHS-5 National report but i can't find the same value of child mortality indicators.
So please provide the commands to get NMR and other mortality indicators in NFHS-5 (India) using Synethtic cohort method as described in 'Guide to DHS Statistics'.
