GUWAHATI, Dec 5 - Welcoming the Supreme Court ruling on gaon panchayat certificate and original inhabitant issues, the All Assam Students Union (AASU) today said it would help prepare an error-free NRC.
AASU president Dipanka Kumar Nath and secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi said the apex court has directed verification of the panchayat certificates and only then it can be accepted as a supporting document. �The panchayat certificate will be accepted only as a supporting document,� they said.
The student body further said that a watertight mechanism should be adopted to ensure that illegal migrants are not able to get their names included in the NRC. �Today�s ruling by the apex court will prevent illegal migrants from using fake documents to get enrolled in the NRC,� it said.
Further, the AASU said the original inhabitant system is an �administrative� system and there should not be any unnecessary confusion over it.
