Guwahati: The much-awaited updated Final National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam was released on Saturday, excluding the names of over 19 lakh applicants.
A total of 3,30,27,661 people had applied to be included in the NRC, news agency PTI reported. Of them, 3,11,21,004 have been included in the document and 19,06,657 excluded, a statement from the NRC State Coordinator’s office said here.
The status of both inclusion and exclusion can be viewed online in the NRC website, www.nrcassam.nic.in.
The final list was published at 10 am and the hard copies of the Supplementary List of Inclusions are available for public viewing at the NRC Seva Kendras (NSK), offices of the deputy commissioner and offices of the Circle Officer during office hours, the statement said.
Any person who is not satisfied with the outcome can file appeal before the Foreigners Tribunals within 120 days.
Assam government has earlier said those left out of the NRC will not be detained under any circumstances until the Foreigners Tribunals declare them as foreigners.
