Assam NRC Final Draft List 2018: Around 40 lakh people have been excluded from the much anticipated second and final draft of the National Registry of Citizens (NRC). The final list was released on Monday at a press conference by NRC state coordinator, Prateek Hajela in the presence of Registrar General Sailesh and Satyendra Garg, joint secretary (NE) of the Ministry of Home Affairs. “Out of 3.29 crore people, 2.89 crores have been found eligible to be included,” Hajela said in Guwahati.
Asking people whose names were left out not to panic, Registrar General of India Sailesh said the process for making claims and objections would begin on August 30 and continue till September 28.
Satyendra Garg, joint secretary at the MHA, said based on this draft no one would be sent to the Foreigners’ Tribunals nor would anyone be sent to detention camps. The first draft was published on December 31, 2017, and the names of 1.9 crore of the 3.29 crore applicants were incorporated.
