Rejection process paused as Assam's NRC yet to be notified.

Guwahati: National Register of Citizens (NRC) authorities in Assam may start issuing rejection slips to those left out of the final register published last year only after the NRC is notified by the Registrar General of India. “NRC is yet to be notified, without which it is difficult to issue rejection slips,” a senior NRC official told ET on condition of anonymity. The process of issuance of rejection slips was slated to start from March this year. The final NRC published in August 2019 had found 31,121,004 persons eligible for inclusion in the registry, leaving out 1,906,657 persons.


The official said that as per paragraph 7 of The Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and Issue of National Identity Cards) Rules, 2003, the local registrar shall, after disposal of claims and objections under subparagraph (3) of paragraph 6, prepare and publish a supplementary list for inclusion or deletion of names as the case may be. Thereafter, he said, the Registrar General of Citizen Registration shall publish the final National Register of Indian Citizens in the state of Assam.



The official said that without this it is difficult to operate paragraph 8, which deals with appeals. “Any person not satisfied with the outcome of the decision of the claims and objections under paragraph 7 may prefer an appeal before a designated tribunal constituted under the Foreigners (Tribunal) order 1964,” says paragraph 8.

The Supreme Court-monitored NRC is an exercise to weed out illegal immigrants. Assam’s parliamentary affairs minister Chandra Mohan Patowary, replying on behalf of chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, who is also in charge of the home department, had said in a written reply to a question in the Assam assembly in March that the rejection slip would mention the reason for excluding a person’s name from the final NRC.


However, following the outbreak of Covid-19, the issue of rejection slips got pushed to the back-burner. In the first phase, about 400,000 people who did not apply for inclusion in the register were expected to get rejection slips. About 33 million people had applied for inclusion in NRC and nearly four million people were excluded in the draft NRC published on July 30, 2018. Nearly 3.6 million people have submitted their claims for inclusion.

“We have to give speaking order to the person concerned with a rejection slip. To the four lakh people the reason for rejection is non-submission of requisite papers,” said the official cited earlier. “There is a problem, for we are yet to figure out as to how to proceed. Although the inclusion of several people was cleared by the officers concerned, their names were deleted later. In several cases, the names of persons cleared by the officer were later rejected.”


Those who get the slip can move the foreigners’ tribunal within 120 days for further claims. If one loses the case in the tribunal, the person can move the high court and, then, the Supreme Court. The NRC has been prepared under rules which provide for a separate citizenship law for Assam than the rest of the country. To deal with the increased number of cases, Assam has doubled the number of foreigners’ tribunals to 200.
