    Re-Verification Of NRC List Doesn’t Require Orders From SC: Upamanyu Hazarika

    The power to review and undertake re-verification of those wrongfully entered in the NRC is an executive power vested in the Government: Prabajan Virodhi Mancha

    The Prabajan Virodhi Mancha said that there is no requirement for seeking orders from the Supreme Court to carry out the re-verification process of the people who were wrongfully included in the final National Register of Citizens (NRC) list which was published on August 31st, 2019.

    Addressing a presser here on September 10th, 2019, Upamanyu Hazarika said, “A large number of Ministers, BJP leaders, AGP, AASU and so on has publicly announced of approaching the Supreme Court seeking re-verification of the NRC list but in terms of the existing legal provisions, there is no requirement as the State government has all the powers to do it itself.”

    “In case of the NRC after its final publication, Rule 10 of the Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and Issue of National Identity Card) Rule 2003 vests power in the Registrar General or his nominee to remove any names from the citizens list if it is found to be on the basis of incorrect particulars,” he added.

    He further said that the statutory position being that the executive has the authority to re-verify entries in the NRC, a fact-finding investigation in this regard will enable the Registrar General to undertake re-verification.

    “We have submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal seeking their intervention towards the long-lasting solution of protecting the indigenous in Assam from becoming a minority by ensuring a legal protection reserving land, employment, trade and educational opportunities only to those who were citizens in 1951 and their progeny,” said Hazarika.

    Hazarika also slammed the previous and present governments for not carrying out the entire NRC updating process in a sincere manner. “It is now up to the Government and the leaders to take forward the task which is actually theirs and not the Court’s,” added Hazarika.
