GUWAHATI, Aug 4 - Governor Jagadish Mukhi today said that every State must have an NRC which should be updated regularly as it would be effective in dealing with issues related to the country�s internal security.
The NRC should not be just for Assam, but for every State in the country, Mukhi told PTI in an interview here. His remarks come amid a raging debate on Assam�s NRC after the final draft list of the exercise left out over 40 lakh names.
The publication of the final draft of the NRC on July 30 was an �historic event�, he said and assured that not a single Indian�s name would be excluded in the final register.
�I feel that every State must have an NRC of its own. Once it is prepared by all States, it should be updated every 10 years after the census report is published. If this can be done, then the internal security of the country will be perfect,� he said.
The Governor congratulated officials of Registrar General of India and employees of the State government involved in this �gigantic task� of updating the NRC. � PTI
