The office of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) will publish an additional draft list on June 26. As we all know, the government is updating its list of citizens of Assam, and the official published its complete draft NRC on July 30, 2018. However, those applicants who fail to find their names in the Draft got another opportunity by way of submission of Claims for inclusion. Now, before publishing the Final NRC, the NRC officials will publish an additional exclusion list to draft NRC so that excluded person can get another opportunity to file their Claims. You can visit addnl.nrcdrafts.com to check if you are affected by the exclusion list.
