Best scientific method used for NRC update: Hajela

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Aug 29 - The State NRC Coordinator , Prateek Hajela today said that one of the best scientific methods was used for verification of the documents submitted by the applicants for inclusion of names in the National Register of Citizens.

In a letter to the Sachetan Nagarik Mancha, Hajela strongly reacted to the allegations brought forward by the organization and pointed out that verification of six crore documents would not have been possible without using sophisticated IT based method.

Hajela pointed out that the Mancha has been alleging inclusion of names of large number of foreigners in the NRC but there was a legal provision of filing of objections. The records available showed that the Mancha did not file any objection against any wrongful inclusion of name in the draft NRC. In its memorandums also, the Mancha failed to give any specific allegation. The Mancha only gave reference of one Khairul Islam, who was a school teacher in Morigaon and was engaged for a limited period for writing a hand written draft. The idea of a hand written draft was dropped within a few days. Moreover, the person was not engaged in any statutory work, the letter said.

The Mancha, in its memorandum, also mentioned about a few ARN numbers and no such number actually exist.

The ARN numbers mentioned in the memorandum of the Mancha are five digit numbers while all the ARN numbers are 21 digit numbers. �You have further alleged that names of indigenous people are excluded from NRC (Draft). On this account also you have not pointed out a single such instance to any of the NRC authorities so far,� Hajela said in the letter.
