NEW DELHI: There would be no need to prove one’s pre-1971 ancestry or any compulsion to submit documents of one’s parents or ancestors during the NRCNSE 2.22 % (National Register of Citizens) exercise, which wouldn’t be based on religion, a senior government official said.


This follows advertisements in newspapers on Thursday assuring people that rules of NRC, if and when formed, will ensure that no Indian citizen is inconvenienced. Amid concerns that one may need to prove his/her pre-1971 antecedents during the exercise, the government official said that all-India NRC will be completely different from the one that happened in Assam and will be as per the Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and Issue of National Identity Cards) Rules of 2003.


The said rules do not refer to any cut-off date for registering citizens under NRC. In the case of Assam, NRC was done with a 1971 cut-off date based on Assam Accord.


“There is absolutely no compulsion to submit any document by the parents. Citizenship can be proved by submitting any documents related to date of birth and place of birth,” another official said.


The officials claimed voter I-cards, passports, Aadhaar, licences, insurance papers, birth certificates, school-leaving certificates, documents relating to land or home or similar documents issued by government officials, or even more, would be accepted as proofs of citizenship.
