A senior Home Ministry official said that the NRC list will be available online by 10:00 am on Saturday morning. Those who do not have internet, can go to service centers established by the state government to know their status.

On the other hand, the security system has been strengthened in the state to deal with any unpleasant incidents. A large number of security forces have been deployed. 51 companies have been deployed on the government’s request.

These people place themselves on the list

Citizenship is being identified for the first time since 1951 in Assam. Second, there are a large number of illegal people living here. The final update of the NRC is under the supervision of the Supreme Court. Originally, 40.37 lakh people were not against the names of 3.29 crore people in the NRC list in 2018.

Now the final NRC will include the names of those people, who are citizens of Assam before March 24, 1971 that their ancestors have been living in the state. This verification is done through government documents.

Senior NRC Authority officials, who did not want to be named, said that they would be given one more chance to prove themselves an Indian citizen even if they were not listed in the final list.

Such a foreign citizen will first go to the tribunal, then to appeal to the High Court and then to the Supreme Court. The state government will also provide legal help to the people. People will have 120 days to appeal the matter. Previously this time limit was only 60 days.

Security system in Assam has been enhanced. Keeping in view the suspicions of violence and communal strife, the state government and the home ministry have appealed to the people to keep peace. The advisory released by the police has appealed to people not to trust rumors and fake news. Section 144 has been implemented in 5 districts including Guwahati.
