The Supreme Court has refused to extend the May 31 deadline for the ongoing process of publication of the final National Register of Citizens, NRC in Assam in the wake of panchayat elections in the state, saying the polls should not become an impediment. 

The court, however, spared the Additional Deputy Commissioner rank officer currently engaged in NRC updation work for the local bodies elections scheduled next month. 

A



bench of Justices Ranjan Gogoi and R F Nariman yesterday said that the deadline for updation of NRC is May 31 and the next 30 days for cross-checking of data till June 30. 

The bench's remark came after the state government said the panchayat elections were due next month and urged that the employees engaged in NRC work be allowed to be deployed for the polls. The NRC is being prepared to identify illegal migrants in Assam.
