1. How can I be sure that names of illegal migrants or foreigners will not get included in the updated NRC?
Latest IT (Information and Technology) tools are being used in NRC updation in Assam to catch fictitious claims of linkages by computerized construction of family tree. Centralized database shall be maintained for storing scans of all documentary evidence adduced for immediate checking at various levels – circle, district or state. Moreover, very strict supervision will be put in place to ensure verification of all documents submitted by the applicants. Validation shall be carried out with the backend data for the documents produced to check for fake/ doctored / manufactured documents. In case, adequate grounds exist for suspecting inclusion of an illegal migrant in the Draft NRC, citizens shall have the right to submit objections against such inclusion.
2. Is there any chance for exclusion of names of any citizen in the updated NRC?
All residents are invited to apply for inclusion of their names in NRC. If the applicant can produce documentary evidence, as admissible, inclusion in NRC shall not be difficult. Even in case a citizen gets left out at the Draft Publication stage, he/she will be able to submit a claim for inclusion at the time of final publication.
3. Will I get an identity card after my name is enlisted in NRC?
Issue of identity card is not included in the current phase of updation of NRC. It may happen in the next phase.
4. What are the authorities to be contacted for any complaints or for getting any clarification?
You can call at NRC Helpline 15107 or visit your nearest NRC Seva Kendras (NSKs) for any kind of complaint or queries related to NRC updation. Also you can lodge any complaint through the web-site www.nrcassam.nic.in .
