NRC updation is basically the process of enlisting the names of citizens based on electoral rolls upto 1971 and 1951 NRC.
This updation process by the government of Assam has given the smile on faces of IT traders in Assam and North East region. This registration and updation process has increased the sales of IT products. Channel partners are garnering more business from this large scale project of NRC.

Business has increased 20-30% from previous year. We are hoping all IT traders in North East region are getting tenders from government,” Surendra Choraria, director, Jain infosys.
