The final draft of Assam’s National Register of Citizens (NRC) was published on July 30, 2018. The final list excluded the names of around 40 lakh people. Of the 3.29 crore people who had filled in their applications, only 2.89 crore found their names in the draft list. The issue was raised in both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha during the monsoon session, with Opposition leaders protesting against the move. Those who figured in electoral rolls up to March 24, 1971, or who are descendants of such citizens, are eligible for inclusion in the updated NRC.
