The purpose of releasing the NRC list is to find whether a person residing in Assam is actually an Indian or a foreigner.

Security was tightened across the state ahead of the publication of the NRC list. As a precautionary measure, fifty-one companies of the Central Armed Paramilitary Force (CAPF) had been deployed in various parts of the state. Section 144 of CrPC has been clamped in Dispur, where the state Secretariat and Assembly complexes are located. Prohibitory orders have been clamped in vulnerable areas like Bhangagarh, Basistha, Hatigaon, Sonapur and Khetri. Prohibitory orders are already in place in Dispur since August 28 and will stay until further notice.
The publication of the last NRC list – a sensitive political issue – is likely to stir up a huge gamut of reactions involving many of the stakeholders. Barring AASU, all major political parties, including Congress and AIUDF, have expressed fear that names of many genuine Indian citizens might be left out while those of the illegal foreigners may be included.
Keeping in view the far-reaching implications of the move, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has called upon the people of the state to keep up peace and tranquillity.
Ahead of the publication of the NRC list, the Ministry of Home Affairs has also urged people not to believe in rumours.
