SC extends deadline for Assam NRC publication to Aug 31

DD News
The Supreme Court today extended the deadline for publication of final National Register of Citizens, NRC, in Assam by a month, from July 31 to August 31.

Also, the Apex Court rejected the pleas seeking permission for 20 per cent sample re-verification. The Centre and the Assam government sought permission for sample re-verification to find out wrongful inclusions and exclusions of persons in the NRC. 

The order was passed by a bench, comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice R F Nariman, which perused the reports filed by the Assam NRC coordinator Prateek Hajela.

Both the governments had told the top court earlier that India cannot be the refugee capital of the world and sought an extension of its deadline of July 31st to complete the Assam NRC.

They sought directions to conduct sample re-verification to quell a growing perception that many illegal immigrants may have infiltrated the NRC especially in districts bordering Bangladesh.
