States will be consulted before NRC, may use NPR data: Law Minister

Dec 29, 2019 08:12 IST

Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad in an interview to the Indian Express has said that proper legal process will be carried out in the implementaion of the NRC, which will include consultation with state governments. This comes at a time when more than half a dozen state governments including Bihar, led by BJP ally JDU have opposed implementation of NRC. Prasad also said that 'some' data collected for the National Population Register "may or may not be used" for NRC. In an interview to news agency ANI last week, Home Minister Amit Shah said the NPR and NRC were independent of each other, and cannot be used in each other's survey.
