NRC List out: Here’s how you can check status
The process to identify illegal immigrants was started under directions from the Supreme Court four years ago.
In the first draft released in July 2018, names of 4 million of the 32.9 million applicants were missing. Another list released this June excluded 100,000 more names.
Of those excluded, nearly 380,000 did not file fresh claims for inclusion in the draft list1. These applicants won’t find mention in the final NRC, which is estimated to exclude names of around 1 to 2 million applicants.
Here is how to check your name on the NRC:
Applicants who need to check their status in final NRC:
*Those who submitted claims for inclusion after their names were missing from the complete NRC draft released on July 30, 2018. The complete draft didn’t include names of 4 million applicants.
*Those whose names were in the additional exclusions list released on June 26, 2019. The list had named nearly 100,000 people whose names had been removed from the complete draft.
*Those who faced objections against their inclusion in the complete draft of July 2018.
*Those whose names were included in the complete draft but were called for re-verification/hearings held from July 5, 2019 ownwards.
