It has also been observed by the same Tribunal that almost all Citizenship Certificates of Registration before it are fake/forged/tempered which has surfaced after it has examined series of Citizenship Certificates covering the Districts of Nagaon, Morigaon, Barpeta, Kokrajhar, Kamrup (Metro) and Kamrup (Rural).
The Tribunal also has further revealed the modus operandi of faking certificate by making a duplicate format with same serial Number.
TIME8 has accessed one such serious case of forgery where the serial Number printed on the Original and Fake certificates are ditto but the content therein is all different. One Subal Das S/O Bulok Das has exhibited a certificate of Registration in the name of his father obtained from Barpeta and on inspection of the original Official record from the concerned authority, the Serial number in the name of Subal Das turned out to be actually in the name of one Subal Sanyashi in the Original record.
It must be noted that BJP in Assam has tried to provide citizenship to Hindu Bangladeshis by bringing about the controversial, Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016.
