Guwahati, Sep. 10 (PTI): People excluded from the final NRC will get certified copies, regarding rejection of their names, at the earliest so that they can file their appeals, the office of the NRC state coordinator announced on Tuesday.
The dates regarding distribution of exclusion certificates will be announced soon, NRC State Coordinator’s office tweeted.

The process of collection of exclusion certificates from the NRC Seva Kendras are on, the notice added.
The final NRC published on August 31 consisted only of Supplementary Lists and “queries are being received from the public about publication of all members of a family irrespective of their involvement in the claims and objections process” the tweet said.

“The results for the complete family will be available for display online from September 14 next and this will be available only online,” the notice added.

Women hailing from other states married in Assam excluded from NRC — Mukul SangmaSenior Congress leader Mukul Sangma on Tuesday claimed that the final NRC has left out all the Indian women who had come to Assam as brides from other states of the country.

Sangma, a former chief minister, also urged the state government to help those women who were originally from Meghalaya but married to residents of Assam and did not find their names in the National Register of Citizens.
“All brides who were from other states have been excluded. Brides born in West Bengal, Nagaland, Bihar and Meghalaya were excluded from the NRC,” he said during a discussion in the Assembly.

The saddest thing about exercise is genuine Indian citizens have been left out, the leader of the opposition in Meghalaya Assembly said adding that he received frantic calls from such victims in Assam.

Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said he has spoken to his counterpart in Assam over the exclusion of women hailing from Meghalaya and married in Assam.

The final NRC was published on August 31 excluding over 19 lakh people.
Sangma asked the government to be on guard so that no foreigner could infiltrate into the state.

Conrad K Sangma admitted that outsiders were detected trying to enter the state without valid documents.
He said the police have detected and sent back 223 people recently from various infiltration checkpoints set up across the state.
