Guwahati/New Delhi : The friction between the centre and the Supreme Court continues as the fate of NRC hangs like the pendulum. The state government has pressed for the revision of NRC even after state NRC coordinator Prateek Hajela has confirmed the 26% of the total NRC data had already been verified.
Taking a issue of the flood in Assam the state government requested the Supreme Court to extend the deadline of NRC publication to August 31. The centre will give its response on Tuesday (July 23).
The hearing was crucial as the centre and state sought to have revision by officers from different districts and the class 1 level and the Supreme Court so far has given no invitation that they were very excited about the idea.
Prateek Hajela’s submission punched a hole to the revision demand but the centre would continue to push for postponement on Tuesday next.

In the court room drama that unfolded on the reviewing situation of the NRC publication the Solicitor general of India wanted to study the reports filed by Assam NRC Coordinator Prateek Hajela on July 10 and 18. Some paragraphs in the reports, not strictly to do with the issue of sample verification, need to be redacted while giving to the government.
