Though certain constraints still remain, but more and more people have been able to submit their forms in the past few weeks. Many non government organizations (NGO) have come forward to facilitate the common people in filling up application forms for NRC.
South Barak Rural Development Agency, an NGO started in the year 2010, has established an NRC helpline centre in Binkandie Part 2 to help the public in this regard.
