GUWAHATI, March 10 - Twenty-six organisations have urged Chief Justice of India Justice Dipak Mishra to review the directive of the Supreme Court to update the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the State taking March 25, 1971 as the cut-off date.

Assam Sanmilita Mahasangha working president Matiur Rahman said in a statement here today that the appeal has been made by the 26 organisations in view of the December 17, 2014 directive of the two-member division bench of the apex court comprising Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Rohinton Nariman.

The court of Justice Gogoi and Justice Nariman referred the case on the base year for determination of Indian citizenship to a Constitution Bench of the apex court. Justice Gogoi and Justice Nariman issued the directive in case 562/2012 and case 876/2014 filed respectively by Matiur Rahman of the Mahasangha and the Ahom Sabha. Since the decision of the Constitution Bench on the issue is pending, the directive of the two-member bench of the Supreme Court on updating the NRC taking March 25, 1971 as the cut-off date is erroneous, argued the 26 organisations.

The organisations also thanked the Chief Justice for the announcement he had made on February 5, 2018 on the formation of the Constitution Bench. They expressed the hope that the apex court would form the Constitution Bench within the current month.

The organisations which have made the appeal include � the Sadou Assam Pahari Janajati Parishad, Amri Karbi Jatiya Parishad, Amri Karbi Chatra Santha, Sadou Tiwa Chatra Santha, Sarania Kachari Sanmilani (Assam), Sadou Assam Sarania Kachari Chatra Santha, Deuri Sangram Samiti, Assam Pradesh Manipuri Association, Asamiya Sikh Santha (Assam), Tiwa Jatiya Aikya Mancha, Garia Moria Deshi Jatiya Parishad (Assam), Bodo Jyastha Samaj, Barman Kachari Sahitya Sabha, Sadou Barman Kachari Chatra Santha, Sadou Chutiya Jati Sanmilan (Assam), Sadou Assam Nichi Association, Assam Manipuri Sahitya Parishad, Assam Meitei Apunba Lup, Parbatya Janajati League, Karbi Chatra Yuba Parishad, Kuki Chatra Sangathan, Sadou Assam Dharmiya Sankhyalaghu Parishad, Karbi Chatra Sangathan, Sadou Assam Madahi Janajati Sanmilan, Dimasa Chatra Sangathan and Kuki Jatiya Parishad, Rahman said.
