What is the full form of NRC?
The full form of NRC is “National Register of Citizens“. It is a register containing the names of all genuine Indian citizens. At present, only Assam has such a register. This can be extended to other states also. Nagaland is already creating a similar database known as the Register of Indigenous Inhabitants (RIIN). Union Home Minister Amit Shah announced in Parliament on 20 November 2019 that the National Register of Citizens (NRC) will be implemented across the country, which will contain demographic and biometric details of citizens. In the Rajya Sabha, Shah said that there is no provision in the NRC to exclude people based on religion.
The NRC in Assam is basically a list of Indian citizens residing in the state. The Register of Citizens sets out to identify foreign nationals in a state bordering Bangladesh. The NRC contains the names of Indian citizens who live in Assam. It was prepared in 1951 after the Census of India 1951. It was prepared based on the details of all the persons mentioned during the census. Those who came to Assam before the formation of Bangladesh (before 25 March 1971) would only be considered citizens of India. Assam is the first state in India to have a National Register of Citizens (NRC).
In Medical, the full form of NRC is “Nutrition Rehabilitation Center”. NRC is a health facility that admits and manages children with SAM (Severe Acute Malnutrition). Children are admitted to the Nutrition Rehabilitation Center (NRC) and receive medical and nutritional care according to the defined admission criteria adopted according to the Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) and WHO recommendations.NRC provides institutional care for children with acute malnutrition and it promotes the physical, mental & social growth of children with acute malnutrition.
