Abstract

With the introduction of new forms of surveillance and an expansive list of criteria to meet, the National Register of Citizens (NRC) has become the source of distress and even suicide, for some residents of Assam unable to provide this information. Lawmakers, academics and members of civil society must thus consider the state's accountability regarding this, writes Rafiul Ahmed.
