GUWAHATI, July 29 - All preparations have been completed for the publication of the complete draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) at 10 am tomorrow and the process of receiving claims and objections will start from August 30. However, the date for publication of the final NRC is yet to be decided and that will be announced only after the claims and objections are disposed of.

Talking to The Assam Tribune, the State Coordinator for the NRC, Prateek Hajela said that the process of updating the NRC, which started in 2015, would reach a crucial stage with the publication of the complete draft tomorrow. He said that the Registrar General of India (RGI) would also be present in the formal launch of the complete draft of the NRC in the State Coordinator�s office at 10 am tomorrow.

Replying to a question on the preparations for publication of the complete draft of the NRC, Hajela said, �everything is in place and we are ready to publish the draft at 10 am tomorrow.� He said that immediately after the draft is published, anyone would be able to check the same on the websites, while, at the same time, the SMS services would also start. He said that the hard copies of the complete draft of the NRC, which contains 22 lakh pages, have also been printed. The hard copies will be available in all the 2,500 NRC Seva Kendras spread all over the State at 10 am. However, only the lists of the respective areas would be available in the Seva Kendras.

The first draft of the NRC, published on December 31 last year, contained only names of the applicants, but the final draft would have photos, place of birth and names of parents along with the names of the applicants who were found to be eligible for inclusion in the NRC.

It may be mentioned here that around 3.29 crore people applied for inclusion of their names in the NRC and names of around 1.90 crore people were included in the first draft. However, names of 1.50 lakh people, which were included in the first draft, would not figure in the complete draft as mismatches were found during the family tree verification.

On the process of filing of claims and objections, Hajela said that people would be given time to check the complete draft of the NRC properly for a week. From August 7, those whose names would not appear in the draft, would have a chance to approach the officers in charge of the NRC Seva Kendras to know the reasons for non-inclusion of their names in the draft. The process of receiving claims and objections would start from August 30 and those would be received up to September 28. No time limit has yet been framed for disposal of the claims and objections and it would depend on the numbers of such claims.
