More than 19 lakh people in Assam have been excluded from the final list of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam including former Katigora MLA Ataur Rahman Mazharbhuiya. The citizens’ list was published at 10 am on August 31st, 2019. A total of 3.11 crore people made it to the final list.
The status of both inclusion and exclusion can be viewed online on the NRC website (www.nrcassam.nic.in). Any person who is not satisfied with the outcome of the claims and objections can file an appeal before the Foreigners Tribunals, informed Prateek Hajela, State Coordinator, NRC, Assam.
