    SC Upholds August 31 As Deadline For NRC Publication

    The SC bench led by CJI Gogoi, while talking about the revelation of data in the Assam Legislative Assembly, said, “Anything said in the assembly is beyond the purview of judicial review

    The Supreme Court on August 8th, 2019, said that it would continue to oversee the National Register of Citizen (NRC) finalized as per the scheduled date of August 31st, 2019. “We will not be bothered by what others say about our orders and judgments. We will continue to oversee NRC finalised as per the scheduled date of August 31,” Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said.

    The SC bench led by CJI Gogoi, while talking about the revelation of data in the Assam Legislative Assembly, said, “Anything said in the assembly is beyond the purview of judicial review. It’s as simple as that.” However, the apex court has reserved the order on the citizenship status of the people born in India between 1971 and 1987 and who were not included in the NRC list.

    It may be mentioned that the final NRC was supposed to publish on July 31st, 2019. The Supreme Court has extended the deadline to August 31st, 2019. On the midnight of December 31st, 2017, partial draft of the NRC was released and subsequently on July 30th, 2018, the complete draft NRC was released. A total of 28,983,677 persons were found eligible out of 32,991,384 applicants in the final draft of the NRC. The NRC authorities on June 26th, 2019 published an additional draft exclusion list consisting of 1,02,462 persons.
