Why NRC Assam final draft has no names which were present in the first NRC draft?

The NRC final draft is out on 31st August 2019. There are members whose name were present in the first NRC draft but in the Final NRC draft, those names are missing.

What happened to the names which were included in the first NRC draft? This is a common question going on around after the publication of the final NRC.

This is a case where there are more than 1 family members in the NRC form submitted during the process. When the first draft was out, name of some members were included and some members were not included in the first NRC draft.

The name of those who applied for the inclusion again with documents at the designated verification center is seein as accepted or rejected in the final NRC draft but the name of those who were already included is not in the list. This is due to the fact that the Final NRC draft does not inlcudes the names of those who were included in the first round of NRC.

This is a bit confusing for someone whose name was there in the first NRC draft but the name is missing in the final NRC draft. However, the family member who was left out in the first published draft makes it to the list of final NRC.

There is a lot of if-else on the NRC website which says “Why NRC Assam final draft is not showing the names which were present in the first NRC draft?”.
