Supreme Court on Thursday extended the deadline for filing of claims and objections for inclusion of names in Assam NRC to 15 December. The Apex Court also allowed claimants to produce five more documents for the same.  

The bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi rejected the concerns of forgery and photoshop. State coordinator Prateek Hajela had raised these concerns initially in his report to the court. Many stakeholders, including Assam government, had demanded inclusion of all 15 documents in their affidavits. 

The Hajela requested the court to exclude the 1951 NRC, voter lists up to March 24, 1971, citizenship certificates, refugee registration certificates and ration cards issued prior to March 24, 1971.

Supreme Court, earlier, approved these documents: 

  • land documents;
  • permanent residential certificate issued from outside the state;
  • passport;
  • Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) insurance policy;
  • any licence or certificate issued by any government authority;
  • document showing service or employment under government or Public Sector Undertakings;
  • bank or post office accounts;
  • birth certificates issued by the competent authority;
  • educational certificate issued by Boards or Universities;
  • records or processes pertaining to court, provided they are part of a processing in a judicial or revenue court.

The Background

On 1st January 2018, the first draft of the updated NRC was released. In this list, 1.9 crore names out of total applicant pool of 3.29 crores were listed. Seven months later, in its final draft, 40.07 lakhs were left out and remaining 2.89 crores were found eligible for citizenship. (Click to Read More)
