From many years, NRC is now being updated in Assam to include the names of those persons (or their descendants) who appear in the NRC, 1951, or in any other electoral rolls up to the midnight of 24 March 1971, or in any other government-issued documents up to the midnight of 24 March 1971, which would prove their citizenship in Assam or in any part of India on or before 24 March 19. It is only being updated for the state of Assam.
