After the Supreme Court came down heavily on Centre over the NRC process in Assam, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the government is committed to complete the NRC process in Assam within the stipulated time and ensure that neither any Indian national’s name is excluded nor any foreigner’s name is included in the final NRC.
Singh further said the Centre and the Assam Government have completed the NRC work that remained pending for more than 30 years and took it to the final stage.
The Home Minister added that the complete NRC draft was published on July 30, 2018 and thereafter the claims and objections process was also completed by December 31, 2018.
Singh said the Home Ministry has made available necessary funds and resources to the State government so that the NRC work is completed in a time-bound and impartial manner.
He added that central armed forces in required numbers have been deployed in the State over the last one-and-a-half years to maintain law and order in view of the enormity of the NRC exercise.
