Dear @PIBHomeAffairs, what is this? And you expect India to remain silent? #IndiaRejectsNRC #NPRisNRC

This is Page 39 of the NPR 2020 manual. There is no Eid or Bakrid or Milad-e-Nabi or any other Muslim festival. A clear signal on what will be outcome of NPR. Disenfranchising crores of Muslim citizens.

Facts Check Verdict: True, No change from 2011 notification.

News Verification: The above post  has been widely shared by thousands of users on Social media, while many having doubts over the message, yet many did not fail to share the fake information without knowing the fact.

If we go by old notification of NPR 2011, we find nothing has changed, yes 2020 Manuel is same as the manuel issued in 2011. As per the data on page 18,

  1. c) Only year of birth is known : In such situations follow the step-wise approach stated below : i. Record the year of birth. ii. If the informant tells only the year of birth but is not sure about the month of birth, ask whether the birth was before the rainy season or not. If the birth was before the rainy reason, you may further ask whether the birth was in the month during which some important festivals like New Year’s Day, Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti, Makara Sankranti, Pongal, Republic Day, Basant Panchami, Maharishi Dayanand SaraswatiJayanti, Maha Shivratri, Holi, Gudi-Padwa, Ramnavmi, Vaisakhi, Bihu, Mahabir Jayanti, Good Friday, Budh Purnima are celebrated and estimate the month of birth. Similarly, if the birth was during or after the rainy reason, you may probe and estimate the month of birth by asking whether the birth was in the month during which some important festivals like, Nagapanchami, Janamashtmi, Raksha Bandhan, Independence Day, Ganesh Chaturthi, Onam, Dussehra, Gandhi Jayanti, Diwali, Bhai Duj, Maharishi Valmiki Jayanti, Chhath Puja, Guru Nanak Jayanti, Ayyappa Festival, Christmas festival are celebrated. For your convenience, a list of important Festivals and corresponding Gregorian months in which they fall is given at Annex III.

In the 2011 notification we can see no mention of any Muslim festival.
