It may be mentioned that the final draft of Assam’s National Register of Citizens (NRC) has been released today in Guwahati that contains names of Indian citizens of Assam. The final draft of the NRC has left over 40 lakh people in Assam in a state of shock and disbelief as their names were left out of the final draft.
Reports stated that out of the 3.29 Crore people who applied during the NRC Draft updation, over 40 lakh people have been left out, even though the NRC officials have officially clarified that those whose names have not been included will not be declared as foreigners.
The Union Home Ministry had earlier assured that those whose names have not been included in the Final Draft NRC that has been published on Monday, no individual will be termed foreigners or sent to detention centres. Also, they will be provided ample chances to apply for re-verification as the claim and clarification phase is going to begin very soon.
