Assam Top Cop Gets 3-Month Extension, Day Before Final NRC List

Assam Top Cop Gets 3-Month Extension, Day Before Final NRC List Assam Top Cop Gets 3-Month Extension, Day Before Final NRC List

On August 19, Sonowal had indicated that the government may explore legislative options to deal with the wrongful inclusion or exclusion of some names in the NRC after its final publication.

The first draft list (Assam) was released past year, leaving out over 40 lakh people in Assam to seek for means to prove their citizenship.

Officers engaged in the exercise of updating the list are in constant touch with the government departments concerned, including the border police wing and the Foreigners Tribunals (FTs) so that name of any person against whom cases are pending in the tribunals are not included in the NRC.

"There could be minor errors, but we have full faith in the process monitored by Supreme Court".

Assam, with a population of 32 million people, is in a state of high alert and additional security forces have been deployed in anticipation of any law and order situation following the publication of the NRC list.

People will get 120 days to appeal, the government announced earlier this month.

FT courts have been criticised for ex-parte judgments, a process of declaring people foreigners without trial. The deadline of publication of the NRC is August 31.

In an interview to PTI, the chief minister said exclusion of anyone's name from the final list does not mean that he is a foreigner.

Human rights activists fear that the people who do not find their names on the list might face possible jail term or deportation, and their voting and other civil rights snatched away.

The National Register of Citizens policy aims to separate what the Narendra Modi administration deems as "genuine" Indian citizens, as opposed to "foreigners", based on documents that prove people were resident in the state after the 1971 war with Pakistan that led to the creation of neighbouring Bangladesh. As many as 40,07,007 persons were left out of it, leading to a controversy as this could lead to these people losing their citizenship. Dass said that instructions have been issued to the party's 40 lakh members in the state to seek out genuine Indians left out of the final NRC and help them file appeals. However, as per guidelines, a person can not be kept for more than three years at the camps, and will be released on condition that their biometrics and iris scans are recorded and the person marks his/ her presence at the local police station every week, after a valid address has been given to the authorities.

Concerns are being raised on the BJP's plans to grant citizenship to Hindu immigrants, who will be excluded from the NRC list. "Instead of closing the foreigners issue with publication of an error-free NRC, they want to keep it alive for electoral benefits", said Aminul Islam, general secretary of All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF).

It also called for the detection and deportation of undocumented immigrants.
