Man from Marwari Community ‘declared foreigner' in Assam
GUWAHATI: Pawan Kumar Rathi was served a notice of being a ‘declared foreigner’ on July 1 by the National Register of Citizens (NRC) authorities.
Rathi was born in Silchar under Assam’s Cachar district and is a resident of the town while his forefathers have an ancestral home in Kalu of Bikaner district in Rajasthan.
It is to be mentioned that Rathi's name along with his family members had appeared in the first draft of NRC list published on December 31, 2017 but now he has a task to clear his name from the tag of being a ‘foreigner’.
Rathi said that he has all the documents including his name in the electoral roll, passport, driving license, Aadhar card, land documents, but he has still been declared a foreigner.
Now he is hoping that his name will be there along with other members of his family when the final list of NRC is declared on July 31.
