    Kindly confirm the answer for Q.3 as the creation of NRC is provisioned by the 2003 Amendment of the Citizenship Act, 1955 and the subsequent insertion of section 14 A mandates the Central Government that it may compulsorily register every citizen of India and issue national identity card to him and the Central Government may maintain a National Register of Indian Citizens and for that purpose establish a National Registration Authority. The answer should be (a).

    It is absolutely true that there is mention of registration of citizens in citizenship act 1955, but NRC that India have made is first of all till now only of Assam that too based on foreigners (tribunal) order 1964. Through the extension of foreigners (tribunal) order 1964 it will be applicable to all India lavel.
