For Assam Citizens’ List, Deadline Extended, 5 More Documents Allowed

The Supreme Court today extended the deadline for filing claims and objections of people not included in the final draft of the new citizen’s list in Assam to December 15. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi also permitted candidates to produce five more documents previously disallowed by the National Register of Citizens (NRC) coordinator, rejecting his contention that they can be easily forged. These documents are the NRC of 1951, the voter lists of 1966 and 1971, the refugee registration certificate till 1971, and ration cards issued till 1971.
