Assam NRC final list live – What next for those excluded?

Assam NRC final list live | State govt will take up the cause of people left out in the list: Sonowal

The final list of Assam’s National Register of Citizens was released on August 31, 2019. At the stroke of 10 a.m., the NRC authority headed by the apex court-appointed State Coordinator Prateek Hajela released the final NRC on its official website and through its social media handles.

Aadhaar to those who get entry in final NRC

Aadhaar cards will be issued to all those who were excluded in the draft NRC but could get entry in the final list.

This will happen as NRC authorities have taken biometric data from more than 36 lakh people who have claimed Indian citizenship after their exclusion from the draft NRC published on July 30, 2018.

However, those who may be excluded from the final National Register of Citizens (NRC) and can not prove their Indian citizenship after pursuing legal process will not be eligible for obtaining Aadhaar cards anywhere in the country as their biometrics will be flagged.

“The biometric data taken during the process of claims of the NRC will ensure that those who are in the final NRC will get Aadhaar and those who could not prove their Indian citizenship will not get it anywhere in the country,” a senior home ministry official said.

Assam govt will take up the cause of people left out in the NRC list: CM

Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Friday said that the State government will take up the cause of those excluded from the final NRC and ensure that nobody is subjected to any “unnecessary harassment“.

As long as the appellant’s plea remains sub-judice with the Foreigner’s Tribunal, he or she cannot be treated as a foreigner, the chief minister said in a statement.

He, therefore, appealed to the people of the State belonging to Barak, Brahmaputra, hills and plains to maintain peace and tranquility and set an example of a matured society.

Mr. Sonowal further assured that those whose names have been excluded from the NRC will get an opportunity to file their appeal and be heard in the Foreigners’ Tribunal (FT) as per the direction of the Union Home Ministry.
