The final draft of Assam's National Register of Citizens (NRC) was released on Monday in which out of a total of 3.29 crore people, names of 2,89,83,677 (two crore eighty nine lakh, eighty three thousand six hundred and seventy seven) people have been included. Over 40 lakh residents have been found eligible to be included in the National Register of Citizens. However, officials have asked people not to worry as this is just a final draft and they can file claims if they are residents of the state. "This is just a draft, and not the final list. The people who are not included can make claims and objections," the state NRC Coordinator said on Monday.
