Guwahati: The second draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) for Assam was published on Monday. The final draft was published at all NRC Sewa Kendras (NSK) across the state and applicants can check their names in the list which include the applicant's name, address and photographs.

The first draft was published in January and had names of 1.9 crore people out of the 3.29 crore total applicants in Assam recognising them as legal citizens of India. The rest of the names were under various stages of verification, causing anxiety and distress across the state for several months.

The NRC will include the names of all Indian citizens who have been residing in Assam before March 25, 1971.
