SC moved for sample re-verification of NRC

The applications may be listed soon for hearing before a Special Bench of the CJI and Justice Rohinton Nariman.
The Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), in its application, tried to impress upon the court the “unprecedented large scale of complexities” involved in the NRC process.
‘Impact social harmony’
The Ministry informed the court that the NRC exercise had created apprehensions in the minds of the citizens and could very well impact social harmony, and law and order in the State. “It is pertinent that the exercise of sample re-verification must necessarily follow before the publication of the final list,” the application said. The draft NRC list, published on July 30, 2018, had included 2,89,83,677 persons as Indian citizens but found 40,70,707 persons ineligible. The Centre said re-verification should be done for both inclusions and exclusions. In its separate application to the court, Assam said that an “additional exclusion list” was issued on June 26, 2019. This list contained 1,02,463 names which had been earlier included in the draft NRC list.
