What is NRC Assam?

The full form of NRC is National Register of Citizens. NRC is the register which contains details of all Indian citizens. It was prepared in 1951 after the conduct of the Census of that particular year. The Register included particulars of all the persons enumerated during that Census. Now NRC is being updated in Assam. It means the process of enlisting the names of those persons in NRC Assam list whose names appear in 1951 NRC and Electoral Rolls upto 24th March (midnight), 1971 or any of the admissible documents stipulated which would prove their presence in Assam or any part of India on or before 24th March 1971. The provisions governing NRC updation in Assam are The Citizenship Act, 1955, and The Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and Issue of National Identity cards) Rules, 2003. The modalities for NRC updation have been developed jointly by the Government of Assam and the Government of India.
