Imagine how difficult and costly the process of proving ones citizenship will be in a country where 90% of the workforce is in the unorganised sector and millions migrate every year in search for better livelihoods. Imagine how disproportionate the burden of document searching and lining up to be enlisted will be for daily wagers. There are thousands of examples of official apathy where central benefits are often denied to India’s poorest because of incomplete documentation. Citing many such examples, CJP argues that NPR-NRC will be a double whammy for the poorest of India’s citizens.
