The NRC is being updated under the orders of the Supreme Court of India to identify illegal foreigners residing in Assam. Total 3.29 crore people have applied to become a part of the NRC. However, after the publication of the complete draft on July 30, 2018, 2.89 crore out of 3.29 crore citizens found eligible to be included in the NRC. So more than 40 lakh applicants name was not in the draft list. But you no need worry (you will not be treated as a foreigner) if you don’t find your name in the complete draft, because you will be given an opportunity to prove eligibility for inclusion in the final NRC. You have the legal right to apply again by filing claim.
