After much wait, the final NRC list is out and is available at the official website www.nrcassam.nic.in
In the final draft, published in July last year, of the 3.29 crore registered names, as many as 40,07,707 applicants found their names excluded.
One can check their name by typing the ARN number.
As per reports, 3,11,21,004 names are included whereas 19,00,000 people have been excluded from the final list.
People whose names have been excluded from NRC would get an opportunity to file their appeal and be heard in the Foreigners’ Tribunal (FT) as per the direction of the Union Home Ministry.
Notably, the time limit for them to fill in appeals has been increased to 120 days from 60 days.
The entire process of updating the NRC was done over the last more than five years under the monitoring of the Supreme Court and supervision of the Registrar General of India.
