Assam NRC:New Deadline Dec 15

The Supreme Court Thursday extended the deadline for filing claims and objections of people whose names were not included in the final draft National Register of Citizens(NRC) to December 15 and also allowed claimants to rely on five additional documents, beside the 10 permitted earlier, which were objected by the NRC coordinator, subject to “rigorous verification”.

 The five documents that Hajela had requested the court to exclude from his report are the 1951 NRC, voter lists up to March 24, 1971, citizenship certificates, refugee registration certificates and ration cards issued prior to March 24, 1971. Over 40 lakh people had been excluded from the final NRC draft published on July 30 and have been given an option to file fresh claims.
