Karnataka government has decided not to implement NRC in the state. Meanwhile, the Yediyurappa-led government will create a database to include the names of all immigrants residing in the state.
The database will also include the names of foreign nationals whose visa has been overdated. The state had also set up detention centres for the immigrants and are also working on additional centres who will be operationalised soon in the state.
Earlier, the state had sought help from the Centre after the state government had found that the illegal immigrants were involving in criminal activities across the state. Karnataka Congress had also supported the move to deport the immigrants from the state. This is the first state which has dropped the plan of Centre to implement NRC.
