    3.11 Crore Make It To Final Assam NRC List, Over 19 lakh People Excluded

    The Assam government on August 31st, 2019 officially released the final National Register of Citizens list where names of 3,11,21,004 persons were found eligible

    The Assam government on August 31st, 2019 officially released the final National Register of Citizens(NRC) list where names of 3,11,21,004 persons were found eligible for inclusion leaving out 19,06,657 persons including those who did not submit claims.

    It may be mentioned that the process of NRC Update was started in Assam as per the order of the Supreme Court of India in 2013. Since then, the Apex Court has been closely monitoring the entire process. The process of NRC update in Assam differs from the rest of the country and is governed by Rule 4A and the corresponding Schedule of the Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and Issue of National Identity Cards) Rules, 2003. These rules have been framed as per the cut-off date of March 24th,(Midnight), 1971 decided as per Assam Accord.

    From August 31st, 2019, onwards the hard copies of the Supplementary List of inclusions will be available for public view at NRC Seva Kendras (NSK), offices of the Deputy Commissioner and offices of the Circle Officer during office hours. The status of both inclusion and exclusion can be viewed online on the NRC website (www.nrcassam.nic.in). Any person who is not satisfied with the outcome of the claims and objections can file an appeal before the Foreigners Tribunals.

    A total of 3,30,27,661 members applied through 68,37,660 applications. The particulars submitted by the applicants were taken up for scrutiny to determine the eligibility of their inclusion in NRC. The exercise of NRC Update is a mammoth exercise involving around 52,000 State Government officials working for a prolonged period. All decisions of inclusion and exclusion are taken by these statutory officers. The entire process of NRC update has been meticulously carried out in an objective and transparent manner. Adequate opportunity of being heard has been given to all persons at every stage of the process. The entire process is conducted as per statutory provisions and due procedure followed at every stage.

    Any person who is not satisfied with the outcome of the claims and objections can file an appeal before the Foreigners Tribunals.
