Besides the government, the state's ruling BJP and opposition Congress have also come forward to assist bonafide Indians who are kept out of the NRC.

Assam is the only state to have a National Register of Citizens (NRC). The NRC was first prepared in 1951 under the purview of the Census Act, 1948.
