National Register of Citizenship in Assam Discussed During Hasina Visit to Delhi

Bangladesh has expressed apprehensions over the non-inclusion of large numbers in the National Register of Citizenship (NRC) in Assam. The NRC India has explained is an internal process and does not involve external actors.

The Issue was as expected discussed during the visit of Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina to New Delhi from 03 to 06 October 2019.

In fact this was the second time that the issue of NRC has come in talks between Mr Modi the Indian Prime Minister and his Bangladesh counterpart. They had discussed the same during the meeting held on the sidelines of the 74th UNGA in New York.

NRC aims to give effect to the Assam Accord signed in 1985 between the Government of India, State Government of Assam, the All Assam Students Union (AASU) and All Assam Gan Sangram Parishad (AAGSP).

Supreme Court mandated the government to deliver on the commitment in 2013. This led to the process of updating the National Register of Citizens in Assam in 2015. Updating of NRC is a statutory, transparent, legal process mandated by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. ................
