By directing NRC, will we be solicited to exhibit proofs from us being Indian?
Most importantly, it is essential to realize that at the national level, no declaration has been made to begin the NRC procedure. If it is implemented, it doesn’t imply that anybody will be requested for any proof of being Indian. NRC is just an ordinary procedure to enlist your name in the Citizens’ Register. Much the same as we present our identity cards or some other document for enlisting our names in the voter list or getting Aadhaar card made, comparative records will be given to NRC, as and when it is done.
How is citizenship chosen? Will it be in the hands of the govt?
Citizenship of any individual is decided on the basis of The Citizenship Rules, 2009. These guidelines depend on the Citizenship Act, 1955. This rule is open before everybody. These are five different ways for any individual to turn into a resident of India:

In any case, a decision is yet to be taken on such acceptable documents. This is probably going to incorporate voter cards, passports, Aadhaar, licenses, protection papers, birth declarations, school leaving endorsements, records identifying with land or home or other comparative reports gave by government authorities. The rundown is probably going to incorporate more reports so no Indian resident needs to suffer unnecessarily.

During NRC, will we be asked to show old documents, which are difficult to collect?
There is not at all like that. Normal records might be required to prove your identity. At the point when the NRC is declared at the national level, at that point rules and guidelines will be made for it so that nobody will confront any difficulty. The legislature has no expectation of bugging its residents or placing them in a difficult situation!

For this situation, the specialists will enable that individual to bring a witness. Additionally, other proof and community verification and so on will likewise be permitted. A legitimate procedure will be pursued. No Indian resident will be placed in a difficult situation.
There are countless individuals in India who don’t have homes, are poor and are not educated and they don’t have any basis of identity. What will befall such people?
