The National Register of Citizens Bill is a register that will keep records of all legitimate citizens residing in India. Let us tell you that NRC was started in 2013 under the supervision of the Supreme Court in Assam. At present, it is not applicable in any state other than Assam.
➣ What is expected to join NRC?
To prove a citizen of India under NRC, one has to prove that his ancestors had come to India before 24 March 1971. Let it be said that it has been implemented first in Assam to expel illegal Bangladeshis. The bill to introduce it in the whole country can be brought in the next Parliament session. It will have different requirements and draft for implementation across India.
➣ What documents are required for NRC?
To be a valid citizen of India, a person must have Refugee Registration, Aadhaar Card, Certificate of Birth, LIC Policy, Citizenship Certificate, Passport, any one of the government-issued license or certificate.
➣ What will happen to people who do not join NRC?
If a person does not join the NRC, he will be taken to the Detention Center as done in Assam. After this, the government will contact the countries where they are citizens. If the evidence provided by the government accepts the government of other countries, then such illegal migrants will be sent back to their country.
