JORHAT, March 27 � The Golaghat district administration has opened 76 NRC seva kendras (NSKs) at various locations across the district to provide help to the residents of the localities concerned to check their �legacy data� on the basis of the 1951 National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the pre-1971 electoral roll.
The legacy data, which are available in the 1951 NRC and the pre-1971 electoral roll, will help the residents of the localities to establish their patriarchal or matriarchal identities as well as the legacy of Indian citizenship in the State.
The district administration and the officials, assigned exclusively for the NRC update work, have already launched awareness programmes at several places both in the urban and rural areas of the district and asked the citizens to take the application forms from the NSKs, to be distributed free of cost.
Golaghat Deputy Commissioner Anowarul Haque has asked every resident of the district to help officials in the entire process of updating the NRC. Haque said application forms would be distributed in April free of cost and field-level officers would be assigned for the successful implementation of the process.
�Besides, sufficient numbers of officials have been already assigned for mass-awareness programmes in every corner of the district,� said the Deputy Commissioner.
