NRC Assam list: Opposition meets President
The second final draft, which was released on July 30, included names of 2.89 crore people out of 3.29 crore applicants in Assam. It left out names of nearly 40 lakh people.
Ever since the final draft was released, the Opposition has been cornering the Centre for exclusion of people from the list. The central government, however, clarified that it was not the final list and that it was updated under the Supreme Court's supervision.
The first draft of the NRC for Assam was released on the intervening night of December 31, 2017, and January 1 which included names of 1.9 crore people out of 3.29 crore applicants.
The NRC draft for Assam features the names, addresses, and photographs of all Indian citizens who have been residing in the northeastern state before March 25, 1971.
