  • NRC Assam Final Draft to be Out at 10 AM Today at nrcassam.nic.in, Know How to Check Names in National Register of Citizens

Several north-eastern states which share borders with Assam have also kept their police forces on alert to thwart possible infiltration of illegal immigrants.

# 11:45 am: Central Government has intentionally eliminated more than 40 lakh religious and linguistic minorities from NRC (National Register of Citizens) which will have serious ramifications on the demography of different states adjoining Assam, PM Narendra Modi should come to the house and clarify it: Sougata Roy, TMC.

The NRC's first draft, released on December 31, confirmed the citizenship of 19 million people. The citizenship fate of 1.39 crore applicants was to be decided in the complete draft. Let's see if they are restricted or not: Mamata Banerjee says on NCR Assam.

The NRC is an application-based process and if someone does not apply for inclusion of name, that person's name will not figure in the list, however prominent the individual may be, the official said.

The list was uploaded on a government website, but many in remote regions of Assam, who lack internet connectivity, traveled to government booths set up for the exercise to determine their status.

The final draft of the National Register of Citizens was published today in Assam, identifying 2,89,83,677 people as valid citizens of India. Chaygaon is about 50 km from Assam's capital city Guwahati. I had submitted my father's driving license.

The BJP denies any bias, saying it opposes a policy of appeasement of any community.

How anxious should Facebook be after its market collapse?
For Q2, Facebook's daily active users increased 11% year-over-year, to 1.47 billion on average during the month of June. More likely, though, market buzzards are holding off because of how quickly some analysts are turning on the company.

Minutes after release of the final draft, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the exercise was carried out in an "impartial and transparent" manner.

Assam government published the second and final draft of the updated NRC on Monday.

National Register of Citizens (NRC) officials check the names of the residents in the final list at a NRC Sewa Kendra (NSK). "I want to assure all that there is no need for any apprehension or fear". Bengalis living in Assam are being targetted.

"A joint resolution was reached wherein every party promised to let people know that those who don't find a mention in the NRC final draft need not worry as they would get a chance in the claims and objections rounds".

"Although we have been told that we can apply once again to get our names enlisted in the citizenship list, we are anxious about our future", said Nur Banu, a 45-year-old woman from the Darrang district, whose family of six was missing from the list. Officially there are three million people who are officially stateless. But the government told the Supreme Court this month that 150,000 people from the first list, a third of them married women, would be dropped from the next one, mainly because they provided false information or gave inadmissible documents.

Some Hindus were also not on Monday's list. It is a plan to throw out Bengali speaking people and Biharis. "No genuine Indian citizen should have any fear", he added.
