Assam NRC publishes 1.02 lakh names in list

The office of the Coordinator for the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam on Wednesday published an “additional draft exclusion list” consisting the names of 1,02,462 people.

This list is different from the one containing the names of 40.07 lakh people who were excluded last year from the 3.29 crore applicants.
The list can also be accessed on the National Register of Citizens' website.
The excluded people will have the chance to file their claims at the designated NRC help centres by July 11.
For the first time since 1951, the Assam citizens' list is being updated to account for illegal migration into Assam from neighbouring Bangladesh. It is being updates under the Supreme Court’s monitoring and the final NRC will be published on July 31.
Last year, the names of over 40 lakh of the 3.23 crore applicants had been excluded from the complete draft that NRC released.
