NRC: SC rejects AASU plea

The Supreme Court has rejected a plea for Central observers to monitor the verification process of NRC application. A division bench of the Court comprising Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Rohington Fali Nariman rejected the plea by the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) and authorised NRC nodal officer Prateek Hajela to use the gazetted officials in the process if need be. The court, however, asked Hajela to submit a report on the work completed so far covering the verification of application forms, aims and objectives, field verification reports.
