Whereas over three crore people have been found eligible for the inclusion in the final National Register of Citizens (NRC), Prateek Hajela, the State Coordinator of the National Register of Citizens (NRC), said in an official statement.
“A total of 3,11,21,004 persons are found eligible for inclusion in final National Register of Citizens (NRC) leaving out 19,06,657 persons, including those who didn’t submit their claims,” Hajela, said.
He, however, asserted that those who aren’t satisfied with the outcome of the claims can appeal before the Foreigners Tribunals.
The status of both inclusion & exclusion of the people from the list can be viewed online on the National Register of Citizens (NRC) website, www.nrcassam.nic.in.
The hard copies of the supplementary list of inclusions will be available for public view at National Register of Citizens (NRC) Seva Kendras (NSK), offices of the Deputy Commissioner (DC) & offices of the Circle Officer.
The list has segregated Indian citizens living in Assam from those who had illegally entered the state from Bangladesh after 1971.
