BISWANATH CHARIALI, Sept 2 - A retired Indian Air Force (IAF) personnel has lamented that his name was left out of the final National Register of Citizens (NRC) although the names of other members in his family found place in the document. Flight Lieutenant (honorary) Chabindra Sharma, son of freedom fighter Tez Prasad Sharma, from the Boubazar area here could not make it to the final NRC despite using the same legacy data which his parents and children had registered with.
Sharma retired on February 28 last year after 36 years of service in the IAF and he was given the honorary rank of flying officer on August 15, 2017.
His name was also missing from the part publication of draft NRC that was published on December 31, 2017 and also from the complete draft that was published on July 30, 2018 although he underwent three NRC hearings.
Prior to his retirement, Sharma served across India, with postings in Assam, West Bengal, Delhi, Srinagar, Jammu, Rajasthan, among others.
