NRC process gets slow response

Much to utter disappointment the progress to update NRC across the state is progressing at a snail’s pace.

According to officials, the officials deployed in the assignment are likely to complete the on going phase by July 31.

Firstly, only 20 per cent people have so far responded to the filing of forms with relevant documents.

Secondly, many NRC centres have not been able to smoothly function because of some technical problems. “Power failure is responsible for most of the NRC centres,” say officials.

Another problem is man power shortage which is why, a centre is not in a position to facilitate over 20 people submit the forms with documents.

“If it so happens, we won’t be able to complete the task by July 31,” say officials.      

Another reason for delay is the flood waves that have ravaged parts of the state.


The Supreme Court will take the around demand to extend the last date beyond July 31.
