List of Documents Required to Register in NRC 2020

National registration of citizens is known as NRC. NRC helps in identifying the official citizen of the country. Recently the Supreme Court has ordered the updating of the NRC (National Register of Citizens) for the year 2013 for the state of Assam. It is expected that NRC will be updated for the whole of India in the coming year.

The documents required for registration of NRC 2020 will have to provide details of official citizen’s name, address and other necessary details. The NRC is maintained by the Government of India. The first and last registration was maintained in the year 1951 and since then this registration list was not updated.

Assam is the first state where this record has been updated. Updating NRC records will be of great benefit, it will first of all eliminate citizens who are living illegally in the country with no resident proof. It also helps common citizens to fulfill their judicial rights and duties.
