As per reports, United Liberation From of Asom, Independent (ULFA-I) Paresh Baruah’s name has been excluded from the National Register of Citizens (NRC) which was published earlier today.

Baruah’s wife and two sons were among the nineteen lakh people whose names have not figured in the final draft of the NRC.

As per reports, the ULFA (I) supremo’s name had been earlier included in the NRC, however, his wife, Bobby Baruah, and sons, Akash and Arindam, have not been included in the NRC.

The trio have been excluded as they could not provide the necessary documents to the NRC authorities.

The long-awaited final list of National Register of Citizens (NRC) has finally been published today, as per instructions issued by the Supreme Court of India.

After publication of the NRC, Prateek Hajela, the State Coordinator, NRC said, “A total of 3,11,21,004 persons have been found eligible for inclusion in final draft, leaving out 19,06,657 persons, including those who did not submit their claims.

“Those not satisfied with outcome can file appeals before the Foreigners Tribunals”, he added.

It may be mentioned here that the NRC authority has declared that the non-inclusion of a person’s name in the NRC does not amount to his/her being declared a foreigner. Moreover, every individual kept out of the final NRC can appeal to the Foreigners’ Tribunal (FT). The time limit for filing appeals on FTs has been increased from 60-120 days.
