Is the NRC Free and Fair? The Making and Re-Making of Indians as Citizens in Assam: A CJP Series

02, Aug 2018 | CJP Team

In 2014 the Supreme Court ordered an update of the National Register of Citizens under it’s watch. The NRC enjoyed widespread support and many Assamese looked at it as a free and fair process. But as months passed the process started getting more and more complicated as it began getting entwined with other parallel running processes of ‘detecting foreigners’.

In the months leading up to the publication of the final draft of the NRC two controversial orders were passed by the NRC State Coordinator, Prateek Hajela. They have also not included the reasons for excluding 40 Lakh names.

Citizens for Justice and Peace is sending a local team of volunteers and legal experts to help citizens deal with the claims and objection process.
