Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal congratulated the people of the state, and said the "historic day will remain etched in their memories forever".

The power of declaring a person as foreigner is vested with the foreigners' tribunal set up for the objective and all aggrieved persons can approach it if they have exhausted the options available with NRC authorities, he said.

The residents, mostly Muslims of Bangladeshi origin, were deemed "stateless" as India published its draft list of citizens deemed to have entered the country before 1971, when millions fled Bangladesh's war of independence into the state.

This Bill seeks to grant citizenship to illegal immigrants, understood to be from the region, who are Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jains, Parsis or Sikhs. Almost all were Muslim, and many were children. The final draft has excluded about 40 lakh of the 3.29 crore state population from the list. Since then, more claims have been verified and more names added to the register.

"We have achieved a milestone of publishing the first complete draft NRC (National Register of Citizens)", Shailesh, the registrar general of India who uses one name, said at a press conference.
