nrc assam draft - What is NRC (National Register of Citizen) ?

The National Register of Citizen (NRC) is the register that contains details of Indian Citizens. In the year 1951, a census was conducted and upon conclusion of the census the National Register of Citizens (NRC) was prepared by recording particulars of all the persons enumerated during the 1951 Census. According to the official NRC site, these registers covered each and every person enumerated during the Census of 1951 and were kept in the offices of Deputy Commissioners and Sub Divisional Officers according to instructions issued by the Government of India in 1951. Later these registers were transferred to the Police in the early 1960s.

National Register of Citizens (NRC) updation basically means the process of enlisting the names of all citizens residing in Assam at the time of NRC updation. The NRC will be updated as per the provisions of The Citizenship Act, 1955 and The Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and Issue of National Identity Cards) Rules, 2003.
