Register of Indian citizens

National Register of Citizens    ▸ Facts   ▸ Comments   ▸ News   ▸ Videos   

The National Register of Citizens (NRC) is a register of all Indian citizens whose creation is mandated by The Citizenship Act 1955, as amended in 2003. It has been implemented for the state of Assam between 2013โ€“2014. The Government of India plans to implement it for the rest of the country in 2021. According to the Citizenship Rules, 2003, the central government can issue an order to prepare the National Population Register (NPR) and create the NRC based on the data gathered in it. The 2003 amendment further states that the local officials would then decide if the person's name will be added to the NRC or not, thereby deciding his citizenship status. No new rules or laws are needed to conduct this exercise in the whole of India.
