3.11 crore have been included in the crucial citizens’ list. This is the second citizens’ list published in the country after 1951. Coming just weeks after the government ended Jammu and Kashmir’s decades-old special status, the NRC too is expected to go down as one of the biggest moves in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s second term.
