Decision of foreigners tribunal will prevail over NRC order: SC

PTI
Supreme Court has held that a tribunal's order declaring a person as an illegal foreigner will be binding and prevail over the government decision to exclude or include the name from the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam. 

A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna distinguished between the decisions of NRC and of foreigners tribunals and said that the latter's order being the quasi-judicial one will prevail. 

The apex court said, the persons whose names are not included in the NRC in Assam can produce documents including the ones related to the family tree and seek review of the tribunal's decision. 


The court rejected the plea made by petitioners including Abdul Kuddus contending whether a judicial determination of a person being foreigner will stand superseded if his or her name was included or excluded in the NRC in Assam.
