Supreme Court's big order on Assam NRC, fate of 40 lakh people is to be decided

New Delhi: Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected the demand of government to reopen and re-verify National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam. The apex court also said that the security aspects of the data involving NRC will get the same kind as of Aadhaar. The final NRC report will be published on August 31.

Earlier, the deadline of preparation of final draft of Assam NRC was on July 31 but  Apex Court had extended it till August 31. Earlier, the deadline was July 31. The court, however, rejected the Centre and the state government's demand for a re-review of those found in the NRC draft.

The Centre and the state government had demanded re-examination of 20% in the border districts. The government had feared that millions of illegal refugees had also joined local NRC officials to find a place in the NRC draft. The apex court co-ordinator Pratik Hazela has said that no need to rush the process just to complete it within deadline.  

 Supreme Court further said that there are some media reports on how claims and objections are being dealt with and the media is not always wrong. Sometimes they're right too. Please ensure that there is no shortage of process and that it is done correctly.  The final draft of the NRC in Assam was released on July 30, 2018, leaving about 40 lakh people.
