The Center had on August 14 submitted to the court the detailed SOP for the disposal of claims and objections in the updating of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam.

In addition to All Assam Students Union (AASU), All Assam Minorities Students Union (AAMSU) and Jamiat-Ulama-E-Hind, the bench of Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman also asked the petitioners Assam Public Works and Assam Sanmilita Mahasangha to submit their views on the SoP

The court said that SOP would be finalized on Aug. 28, the next date of hearing.

While seeking the views of AASU, AAMSU, Jamiat-Ulama-E -Hind, and the three petitioners, the court ruled out to include the political parties in the exercise.

Asw the bench asked who are the stakeholders to ascertain views on the SOP, State Coordinator Prateek Hajela for preparing the NRC said in the past political partiers were involved

The court also asked Prateek Hajela to give in a sealed cover the district-wise percentage of people who have not been included in the NRC draft.

The complete draft of NRC that was published on July 30 had the names of 2.89,83,677 and left a total of 40,70,707 on grounds of being ineligibles for inclusion. Of the 40,70,707 names, 37,59,630 names were rejected and 2,48,077 names were kept on hold.

The SOP says that during the course of the hearing of claims and objections, which according to the existing schedule would start from December 15, the Assam government along with the Unique Identification Authority of India will undertake the process of biometric enrollment of all NRC applicants.

The biometric enrollment of persons who would be making claims for inclusion and those who are objected to will be distinctive . Separate IDs will be generated for those individuals.

The SoP prepared by the Center states that while a claim for inclusion can only be made by the person concerned, the objection to inclusion of a name in the NRC draft may be made by any

The SOP further states that there would be "no penalty for refusal of an application filed against an objection for inclusion of a name in the draft NRC. "
