Will Ensure All Citizenship Claims Verified: Congress On Assam Registry

Massive Force Mobilisation In Assam Ahead Of Publication Of First Draft National Registrar Of Citizens

Welcoming the first draft list of National Register of Citizens (NRC) for Assam, the Congress said it will ensure that the entire process of verification of citizens is carried out with complete integrity, transparency and accountability.

"The process to verify the names is tedious".

Asked about a tentative date for release of the final draft, Sonowal said, "The Assam Government is conducting the NRC updation process with the State Government machinery, the district Deputy Commissioners' offices mobilised for it on the orders of the Supreme Court". So there is a possibility that some names within a single family may not be there in the first draft.

"The exercise, which so begun in right earnestness, has been monitored by the Supreme Court of India since December 2013 and the first draft has consequently been published yesterday", he added. Hoque was seen calmly explaining to people in an NRC seva kendra in his constituency what to do if one's name was not in the draft NRC.

Paresh Baruah, ULFA (I)'s military head finds place in the first updated NRC draft released by the Registrar General of India in Guwahati on Sunday midnight.

The organisation had received a total of 3.29 crore applications for the verification and remaining names will be out after they are thoroughly vetted and will be revealed in the subsequent drafts as per the direction of the Supreme Court that is overseeing the whole process. "The complete draft will be published after verification of all documents of those who had applied for inclusion".

On the other hand, Mr. Hajela said that no genuine citizen will be excluded from the list.

Assam, which faced influx from Bangladesh since the early 20th century, is the only State having an NRC, first prepared in 1951.According to the Assam Government's official website, "The NRC is a register containing names of Indian citizens". Printed copies of the draft can be checked at NRC seva kendras today between 8am to 4pm and 10am to 4pm on all working days till 31 January. Applicants can also check your name in NRC draft through SMS and by calling on toll-free numbers.

"You can send an SMS from your pre-register mobile number to 97555655 or 9108464438 or 9108464450 in the format 'ARN space ARN (number)' to get information on the inclusion of your name in the NRC draft".
