Bihar Assembly on Tuesday approved resolution unanimously stating there is no requirement of NRC in the state.

Bihar Assembly also passed unanimous resolution on conducting NPR in the state according to 2010 format.

The Bihar Assembly on Tuesday passed a resolution to not implement the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the state. The Assembly also passed a resolution to implement the National Population Register (NPR) but in its 2010 form, with an amendment.

"The Bihar government has written to the Centre seeking the omission of 'contentious clauses' from the NPR forms," said Chief Minister Kumar in the state assembly.
