About NRC

The modus operandi of the conduct of the NRC is highly suspect,because it does not provide any clear answers for those directly affected by it.

It also seeks to write off the presence of actual citizens by lopsided rules. In the event of being declared a doubtful citizen, they have no legal recourse or a fair chance to defend themselves and prove their citizenship. Assam’s Bengali Hindus and Muslims are facing their biggest legal battle.

In the second list declared on the 30th of July 2018, out of 3.29 crore, only 2.89 crore were confirmed as "Indian Citizens" and approximately 40 lakh names were kept on hold. To dispose the 200,000 Bengali 'illegal immigrant' cases it took thirty years. Now we don’t know how many eons it will take to decide the cases of the 40 Lakhs “D” listed people. It is obvious from the way it has been handled that such a complex exercise has been undertaken to simply strip the Bengali voters of their Indian citizenship. It is to be noted that most of the Bengali speaking population targeted in this exercise are Muslims and Hindus. Though the State Coordinator of NRC and the Chief Secretary, Home, Mr. Prateek Hajela has claimed before the Supreme Court that 60,000 employees are doing their duties to finalize the NRC list and that there is no chance of bureaucratic anomalies. However, it has been observed that this claim is far from ground realities. The poor Bengalis have no financial means to fight out the cases in the Foreign Tribunal for being delisted from Indian nationality. The Supreme Court stated on 2nd July, 2018 that the final list of 'D' Voters will be kept pending. Numerous instances of disparities exist where either a mother, father, son, daughter, sister or a brother have been declared doubtful citizens, thus separating them from their families. Thousands of government employees, teachers, lecturers, police jawans, officers and advocates are being deleted from the Voter list. Foreign Tribunals and Border Security Police are issuing notices without verifying the lineage of the person and his family. There are about 5 lakh Bengalis already affected by thes kangaroo courts. Most of the Bengali families have a monthly income below Rs.2600/- They have no assets except make-shift bamboo huts and the only clothes on their bodies. The moment the Foreign Tribunal rejects the appeal of people declared 'D'-Voters, the police arrests the victims and shifts them to the detention centres. Their names are deleted with immediate effect from the ownership of movable and immovable properties. Ration cards are cancelled and their children are debarred from schools and educational institutions. The second draft list of the NRC has taken away citizenship of 1.8 crore people and 40 lakh names have been kept on hold. Politicians have bitterly criticized the way NRC has been functioning. Heated debates and arguments took place in the Parliament.

About AMCR

The NRC or the National Register of Citizens was first prepared in 1951, as part of the Census of India. Those whose names are found in the NRC are qualified as the citizens of India.
