NRC report to get cabinet approval soon


Assam cabinet sub committee report on NRC would get cabinet recommendation next week. If everything goes well, NRC updating is expected to start from July.


Disclosing this at a press conference in Guwahati, Assam accord implementation minister said, “the cabinet sub-committee on NRC will give its recommendations to the state government by March 27 after which it will be sent to the Centre for final modifications." The issue of updating the NRC in Assam has been a subject of controversy in the last few years. The government had started the work on updating the registrar in 2010, but the process was stalled following opposition by several minority organisations.
