An additional exclusion list that includes names of 1, 02,462 people to the draft National Register of Citizens was published in Assam.

All such Claims will be disposed later and results of these people will be announced in the Final National Register of Citizens on 31st July 2019.


A statement issued by the state coordinator of NRC said the list has been published according to the provisions of Clause 5 of the Schedule of the Citizenship (Registration of Citizens & Issue of National Identity Cards) Rules 2003.

The draft, which was issued on 30th July, 2018 had the names of 2.9 crore people, out of total applications of over 3.29 crore people. 45 lakh people were left out in the draft.
