HC order paralyzes NRC works!

The process to update the National Register of Citizens hits a major roadblock when the Gauhati High Court ordered dismissal of the Gaon Panchayat certificates as link documents.

Various political parties, organizations and individuals have expressed grave concern over the new turn where over 50 lakh residential certificates issues by the gaon panchayat secretaries would not work in the process.
 
This would further delay in the completion of the process to update the NRC. 
 
The Gauhati High Court on Tuesday rejected these certificates saying that if a panchayat secretary is allowed to issue such certificates the tribunals might reject its merit.

“If the court or a tribunal detects a certificate holder as immigrant who will run the risk,” said the court. The court maintained that these certificate could be used as a shelter for the immigrants to stay in the state.

The Court suggested the NRC authority to create new certificates authority for the married women to prove linkage with their parents.
