    Assam NRC: Himanta Appeals Supreme Court For Re-verification Of Documents

    The citizen's list was published at 10 am on August 31st, 2019 and a total of 3.11 crore people made it to the final list

    Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on August 31st, 2019 reiterated the Centre and state government’s earlier request for re-verification of documents in bordering and other districts should be allowed by the Supreme Court of India.

    Taking to his Twitter, Sarma tweeted two tweets and wrote, “I reiterate that as requested by Central and State governments at least 20% re-verification (bordering districts) and 10% re-verification(remaining districts) should be allowed by Hon’ble Apex court for a correct and fair NRC.”

    The citizen’s list was published at 10 am on August 31st, 2019. A total of 3.11 crore people made it to the final list leaving out 19,06,657 persons including those who did not submit claims.

    Sarma further pointed out that many Indian citizens who migrated from Bangladesh as refugees before 1971 were left out from the final NRC list as authorities refused to accept refugee certificates. He wrote, “Names of many Indian citizens who migrated from Bangladesh as refugees prior to 1971 have not been included in the NRC because authorities refused to accept refugee certificates. Many names got included because of manipulation of legacy data as alleged by many.”

    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.
