GUWAHATI: With the deadline for making citizenship claims and objections due to end in a week’s time,there are fears of being excluded among people.
The people excluded from the National Register of Citizens (NRC) will get a chance to present their case before the court of law.
Around 36 lakh people from Assam who originally applied for the National Register of Citizens have gone missing.
Among a total of 40 lakh people whose names had been excluded from the final draft of NRC, only 3.5 lakh people have reapplied for their names to be included in the NRC till date.
The final draft was published on July 30.
Since then more than 110 days have passed and 36 lakh people have not approached any NRC seva kendras claiming to be an Indian with further proof.
