SC asks for plan to curb border influx

The Supreme Court has directed the Centre to furnish the action plan to curb cross border infiltration, deportation of immigrants, sealing of the Indo-Bangladesh border and update of National Register of Citizens by the next two weeks.

The apex court’s direction came to the Centre after a division bench comprising Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Rohington F Nariman heard a petition along with the Centre’s plea on Wednesday. The Centre sought four weeks’ time. But it would have to come up with the documents by the next weeks.

The court further asked Dispur to submit a status report by the next two weeks of those whose names do not figure in the updated NRC. The Assam government has opposed the plea challenging the validity of Section 6 A of the Citizenship Act. The Asom Sanmilita Mahasangha and Ahom Sangha have opposed the cut-off date of March 25, 1971 as per Assam Accord.


Dispur told the court that it would face a great deal of hardship if the cut-off date is shifted and that the plea is not acceptable. The Centre has also opposed the plea.
