NRC is a register containing names of Indian citizens, which was prepared for the only time in 1951 and is being updated for only Assam to weed out illegal Bangladeshi immigrants. The first draft of the NRC was published by Assam government on the intervening night of December 31 and January 1. As many as 1.9 crore people were included as legal citizens of India in the first draft.
Ahead of the publication of NRC final draft, several north-eastern states which share borders with Assam have kept their police forces on alert to thwart possible infiltration of illegal immigrants. The state shares its boundaries with Meghalaya, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram and Manipur. The Centre has also sent over 22,000 central paramilitary troops in order to beef up security in Assam and adjoining states in view of the publication of the final draft of the NRC.
The Ministry of Home Affairs has asked the Assam government not to take any action against those whose names do not figure in the NRC.
