Individuals Excluded From NRC To Know Reason For Exclusion In November
GUWAHATI: Individuals left out of Assam’s final National Register of Citizens (NRC) will know the reasons for their exclusion in November, after which they will be able to file appeals in the foreigners’ tribunals (FT) in the state.
In a report published by the Economic Times, a senior official told the publication that the process “will be wrapped up in November this year and the process of moving to the foreigners’ tribunal will start.”
Those individuals who have been left out of the NRC will be able to approach the FT to argue their case to attain citizenship by providing supporting documents.
The appeals will have to be filed within 120 days of getting their rejection letters.
The final NRC was published on August 31 this year and it contained the names of 31.12 lakhs people and excluded 19 lakhs people.
