    Assam NRC: Govt Not To Send Excluded Children To Detention Camps If Parents Are In Final List

    Approved standard operating procedures for disposal of claims and objections had specific provision for children who got left out from the draft NRC: Nityananda Rai

    The Centre government decided not to send the children, who got excluded from the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam but their parents are included, to the detention centre. This was informed by the Lok Sabha on February 12th, 2020.

    The Union Minister of State for Home, Nityananda Rai, said the approved standard operating procedures for disposal of claims and objections had specific provision for children who got left out from the draft NRC, while their parents had been included.

    “Attorney General for India stated on January 6, 2020, before the Supreme Court that the children of parents included in NRC, Assam, will not be separated from their parents and sent to the detention centres in Assam pending decision on the application,” he said in a written reply to a question.

    The NRC exercise was carried out in Assam under the supervision of the Supreme Court. The exercise updation work was started in  2013 after the top court promulgated an order. The final list of the NRC was published on August 31st, 2019 including 3,11,21,004 and excluding 19,06,657 people including those who had not filed claims.
