The final list of updated National Register of Citizens (NRC) is likley to be published around 10am on Saturday, more than four years after the exercise began under the supervision of the Supreme Court.

The NRC is aimed at segregating the Indian citizens in Assam from the "illegal migrants" from Bangladesh living in the state, with March 24, 1971 as the cut-off date.

More than 3.29 crore applicants had filed their applicantions with documents to prove that they or their forefathers lived in Assam on or before March 24, 1971 and sought inclusion of their names in the updated NRC. Over 40.07 lakh applicants, were, however, dropped from the draft NRC released on July 30 last year. Another 1.20 lakh applicants were excluded in June this year, after re-verification of their documents revealed that they were ineligible for inclusion in the updated NRC.

The office of the state co-ordinator of NRC has issued a public notice listing whose names would figure in the final list and how to check their names--both online/off line.
