SILCHAR, Dec 29 - Ahead of the publication of the first draft of the much awaited National Register of Citizens (NRC), Cachar district administration officials are busy selecting a large number of documents, mostly birth certificates, which do not match with the available government records.

Maintaining a clear stance on the developments ahead of the publication of the first NRC draft on December 31 midnight, Cachar Deputy Commissioner Dr S Laxmanan said that stringent action would be taken against those applicants for submitting documents which are allegedly �fake� or �forged� documents.

�We have completed around 97 per cent of field verification of the applications for the NRC across Cachar district. However, during the verification process, a large number of birth certificates which have been submitted by the applicants as evidence with their applications do not match with the available government records. We have kept those forged applications separately for now. Strict action will be taken against those applicants and the officials who issued such fake documents will also be prosecuted in due course after thorough enquiry of the matter by proper agencies,� the Deputy Commissioner assured.

According to sources in the District Health Services Department, complaints of irregularities in birth certificates have been reported from the Borkhola constituency and the Banskandi area of Cachar district.
