GUWAHATI, March 6 - The complex process of verification of family trees for updating the National Register of Citizens (NRC) is so far going on smoothly all over the State and till date, hearing of around 1.40 lakh cases have been completed. The process of verification of the certificates issued by gaon panchayat secretaries is scheduled to start from April 1.

Talking to The Assam Tribune, the State Coordinator for updating NRC, Prateek Hajela revealed that the progress of verification of family trees of the applicants is quite satisfactory and till yesterday, around 97 per cent of the target has been achieved. Around 50,000 persons including around 40,000 Government officials and contractual employees are still working in the entire process.

Hajela pointed out that though around 48 lakh mismatches of family trees were found, the total number of cases to be disposed off would be much less as some cases involve number of persons and the best part of the process is that the people are extending their full cooperation. At present, family trees verification is going on in 2773 centres spread across the State and there has been no law and order problem in any of the centres. From tomorrow onwards, the officials engaged for verification of the family trees will hear at least 10 cases a day to expedite the process.

The NRC Coordinator pointed out that the entire process of verification of family trees is a complex process as there are instances where the concerned persons live in different districts and in a few cases, outside the State. All such persons need to come to a particular centre at one point of time and for that they have to be served the letter of information on time. Around 25,000 persons are engaged for serving the letters of information asking the concerned persons to appear before the officials engaged for verification of family trees. Another issue that had to be tackled is that in a large number of cases, persons of one family tree applied for inclusion of names in the NRC in different districts and all the documents had to be produced before the verifying officers. �We extensively used information technology to ensure that all the documents submitted by the applicants are in front of the officers when they verify the family trees. That was a major technological challenge, which could be achieved,� he added. He also said that the examination of the cases, where the complexities are higher, would start on March 15.

Hajela revealed that the process of verification of the certificates issued by the secretaries of the gaon panchayats would start from April 1 and around 29 lakh such documents would have to be verified. The process is scheduled to run simultaneously in around 1200 centres and the concerned gaon panchayat secretary and the person to whom such certificates were issued would have to be present before the verifying officer at the same time. Interestingly, there are around nine lakh cases, which are common in verification process of both family trees and gaon panchayat secretary�s certificates.
