It is necessary to read and have knowledge of something that we protest against.

WHAT IS NRC

“National Register of Citizens” is a register of all Indian citizens whose creation is mandated by the Citizenship Act 1955 as amended in 2003-2004. it has not yet been implemented except for the Assam.



Assam, being a border state with unique problems of illegal immigration, an NRC for the state was created in 1951 based on the 1951 census data. But it was not maintained afterward. In 1983, the Illegal Migrants (Determination by Tribunal) Act was passed by the Parliament creating a separate tribunal process for identifying illegal migrants in Assam. The Supreme Court of India struck it down as unconstitutional in 2005, after which the Government of India agreed to update the Assam NRC. Following unsatisfactory progress on the update process over a decade, the Supreme Court started directing and monitoring the process in 2013. The final updated NRC for Assam, published 31 August 2019, contained 31 million names out of 33 million population, leaving out about 2 million applicants.

The ruling government Bhartiya Janta Party has promised to implement the NRC for all of India, but it did not find the results of the Assam NRC meeting its expectations. It believes that several legitimate citizens were excluded while illegal migrants were included
