Assam NRC: People unhappy on delay in getting claims’ forms


GUWAHATI: People in Assam are yet to receive the forms for claims, objections and corrections in the state’s National Register of Citizens (NRC), even as the process has been delayed by at least a week from the original schedule.

The NRC Sewa Kendras (NSKs) had on Friday started informing the public about the reasons for excluding names from the complete draft. The exercise, however, was slated to start from August 7.

These centres were supposed to distribute the forms for claims, objections and corrections from the day of detailing the reasons for exclusion, but people visiting the kendras had to return without any forms, reports PTI.

The NRC officials declined to comment on the matter, citing Supreme Court guidelines.

Sources said the forms are now likely to be distributed from August 16.

The NSKs will accept the forms from August 30 to September 28, following which the process of their verification and disposal will begin.
