About NRC

The NRC in Assam, which has seen huge migration of people from Bangladesh over the past decades, is being updated for the first time since 1951 to identify bonafide residents of the state. The process of NRC updation is being done under the watch of the Supreme Court.

However, a huge controversy had erupted when the draft NRC  published on July 30, 2018 excluded over 40 lakh people. It had names of 2.9 crore people out of 3.29 crore who had applied to be included in the list.
