CJP in Action: CJP Volunteer Motivators helping people file NRC Claims in Assam Photo-feature: Our team creating awareness and offering assistance on the ground in Assam

11, Oct 2018 | CJP Team

CJP’s Volunteer Motivators (VMs) are helping people whose names have been left out of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) final draft that was published on July 30, 2018, file applications under the Claims and Objections process for inclusion of their names. Our VMs are a committed group of people who are travelling to different villages in some of the worst affected districts of Assam, conducting awareness meets, helping people with their documentation as well as filling forms. We now also have a TOLL FREE HELPLINE NUMBER 1800 3002 5078. If you need help, call us today!

 

After 4, 007, 707 people were left out of the final draft of the NRC in Assam, CJP’s team kick-started a public campaign to provide relief and assistance amidst this brewing humanitarian crisis.  After the Supreme Court’s directive to resume the Claims and Objections process from September 25, 2018, we have doubled our efforts.

Over four million people have been left out of the NRC draft, most of them from socio-economically backward communities. Now CJP has stepped in with a committed team of volunteer motivators who are travelling from one village to another spreading awareness about the NRC Claims and Objections process and documentation. They are also assisting people file such claims. We have also set up a 24 hour toll free helpline number 1800 3002 5078 that is available in four different languages. We aim to scale up our campaign and for that we need your support. Your contribution can help cover the costs of travel, documentation and technological expenses. Please donate generously here.

Here are a few pictures of our VMs in action on the ground.
