NEW DELHI, Oct 16 � State Coordinator for National Register of Citizens (NRC) Prateek Hajela has submitted a report in sealed cover to the Supreme Court regarding the revised scheduled for update of the vital document.

The confidential report was submitted to Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman on October 8, in keeping with the direction of the apex court. The Supreme Court had directed Hajela to submit to the court a revised schedule so as to advance the completion of the publication of the final updated NRC within an outer limit of 18 months.

The court had stated that it would only like to observe that there is scope for compressing the time schedule indicated in the affidavit of the State Coordinator so that the process of completion of the final updated NRC is advanced to a point of time earlier than what has been indicated.

The matter was scheduled to come up for hearing today, but was deferred as Justice Nariman was absent. The matter has now been posted for hearing on November 11.

The petitioner Aabhijit Sharma said that if most indigenous people do not apply then it would lead to creation of a lopsided NRC. If the NRC update ends up with only 2 crore or so names and not 3 crore plus, it would be a great failure for the people of Assam and total embarrassment for the Government of Assam.

At the last hearing, the Division Bench of the Supreme Court had remarked that it had perused the affidavit filed by State Coordinator. �We have considered the time schedule mentioned in the said affidavit for completion of the work of updating the NRC. We have also taken note of the progress made till date which has been outlined in detail in the affidavit filed by the State Coordinator.�

Meanwhile, the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) which also filed an intervention petition in the case on Thursday, warned that fundamentalist and jehadi forces would not be allowed to grow in Assam and only indigenous people would rule the State.
