The final list was declared and the hard copies of the Supplementary List of Inclusions are available for public viewing at the NRC Seva Kendras (NSK), offices of the deputy commissioner and offices of the Circle Officer during office hours, the statement declared.
What is NRC..?
- The NRC list is different from Assam and was first made in 1951. It will cover those whose names look in the 1951 report and their descendants.
- The list will also include those who have been on India’s constituent rolls up to March 24, 1971, or in any other record certified by the government.
- The government says it carried out the enormous exercise to identify and dismiss undocumented migrants from Bangladesh.
- The work on the latest NRC list, a Supreme Court-monitored practice, started in 2015.

The government has already announced its plan to build 10 more retention centres. Nearly 1,000 people have currently stayed in six detention centres located in the current district jails.
