Why NRC in Assam?

-The NRC in Assam is basically a list of Indian citizens living in the state. The citizens’ register sets out to identify foreign nationals in the state that borders Bangladesh.
-The NRC will form the basis for the detection of illegal migrants, inclusion will protect against harassment and a ticket to enjoying all the constitutional rights and safeguards and the benefits of government schemes.

-The updated final National Register of Citizens (NRC), which validates legal Indian citizens of Assam, is out in Aug 2019 , with over 1.9 million applicants who failed to make it to the list staring at an uncertain future. Equally uncertain was the course of future politics in the state, as neither the NRC’s advocates nor its critics were happy with the outcome.

There were several cases of retired defence personnel, paramilitary personnel, legislators and their families not finding their names in the updated list.

A total of 33,027,661 people had applied to be included in the NRC, of which 31,121,004 have been included in the document and 1,906,657 excluded, a statement from the NRC state coordinator’s office said. Those excluded from the NRC have 120 days to appeal against it at foreigners’ tribunals.
