Centre clarifies comment on NRC

By Spl Correspondent

NEW DELHI, March 3 - The Central government on Tuesday said that the Minister of External Affairs has not termed the final NRC of Assam as historic, constitutional and scientific document through his Twitter handle.

In a Lok Sabha reply to a question by Abdul Khaleque, MoS Home Affairs Nityanand Rai said on the direction of the Supreme Court, the hard copies of the supplementary list of inclusions and online family-wise list of exclusions have been published in the NRC Assam on August 31, 2019. The apex court had taken note of the prayers by the Centre and the State of Assam for a sample re-verification of a limited percentage of the exercise done to take care of wrongful inclusions and exclusions.

The Supreme Court, however, did not consider it necessary to accede to the prayers while hearing the matter on July 23, 2019, he added.

Any person not satisfied with the outcome of the decisions of the claims and objections for inclusion of his/her name in the final NRC may prefer appeal before the designated Tribunal constituted under the Foreigners (Tribunals) Order, 1964 within a period of 120 days from the date of such order, the minister said.
