Assam CM seeks addl forces for publication of final NRC list

India’s Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Tuesday apprised Union Home Minister Amit Shah about the current status of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) exercise in a meeting and sought additional central forces ahead of publication of the final list on August 31. The meeting took place hours after the Indian Supreme Court ordered that the list of those excluded from the final NRC only be published online.

A few days ago, the apex court had rejected the central and Assam governments' plea for sample re-verification to find out wrongful inclusions of names.

"I have apprised the home minister about the the ongoing process of the NRC and reviewed the prevailing situation in Assam. I have also requested the home minister to provide additional security forces," Sonowal told reporters here. The chief minister also appealed to the people of Assam to cooperate in the exercise of finalising the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice R F Nariman on Tuesday said like Aadhaar data, an appropriate regime should be enacted for securing the NRC data. It had earlier said the final Assam NRC would be published on or by August 31. The bench had also brushed aside criticism and statements made in the Assam Assembly and outside relating to the exercise carried out for the NRC and had asked the Centre to adhere to the deadline.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected the government’s demand to reopen and re-verify National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam. The court also said that said that the security aspects of the data involving NRC will get the same kind as of Aadhaar.

The NRC Assam said the status of people born in India between 1971 and 1987 will be decided depending on the final decision by the Supreme Court Constitution bench on the Citizenship Act provisions. “Only hard copies of lists of inclusions and exclusions to be provided at district offices. The NRC to be updated according to law laid down in section 66a Judgment,” the Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said.
