No proof on being Indian will be sought: Govt on NRC

The Central government has appealed to the people not to get misled by the rumours and doubts over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act - CAA, and National Register of Citizens (NRC), as violent protests broke out across the country over the two issues.

The government, in a bid to quell and address the doubts related to CAA and NRC, has provided answers to some of the most common questions related to them.

The government said that the NRC-like process at the national level has not started yet, adding that in the NRC, no proof of being an Indian will be sought from Muslims, and only an identity card will have to be shown.
