In a separate statement issued by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Tendayi Achiume, the UN Special Rapporteur on racism, said: "The Indian Government has an worldwide legal obligation to fully acknowledge the institutionalised discrimination, persecution, hate and gross human rights violations these people have faced in their country of origin and provide them the necessary protection".
The men were in Silchar central prison in Assam since 2012 for illegally crossing the border in violation of the Foreigners Act. The Government of Myanmar issued Certificates of Identity to facilitate the travel of these individuals to their hometowns in Rakhine State.
The Rohingya immigrants will be handed over to the Myanmar authorities in Moreh border post in Manipur on Thursday.
Human rights lawyer Prashant Bhushan had earlier urged India's Supreme Court to stop the deportations, or at least allow the United Nations to speak to the deportees and ensure they knew the risks of returning to Myanmar.
The plea, therefore, was dismissed by CJI Gogoi's Bench on these grounds. The Rohingyas were later lodged at a detention centre in Assam's Silchar.
A large number of Rohingya refugees, since then, have taken shelter in India and Bangladesh, and are staying in refugee camps, often raising security concerns.
"Illegal immigrants will be identified and repatriated", said Rijiju.

India on October 4 deported seven Rohingya to Myanmar, despite United Nations warnings that the men faced persecution in a country where the army is accused of genocide against the Muslim minority.
This is the first time Rohingya immigrants have been sent back to Myanmar from India.
Around 40,000 Rohingya live in India after having fled persecution in Myanmar over the years.
Rakhine was the epicentre of a Myanmar army offensive that over the past year has driven 700,000 Rohingya Muslims into Bangladesh. Bhushan had opposed the government's contention that the men were "illegal immigrants" and said that they had fled a genocide allegedly carried out by the Myanmarese military and were refugees according to the UN.
The Rohingya are despised by many in Buddhist-majority Myanmar, which refuses to recognize them as citizens and falsely labels them "Bengali" illegal immigrants.
"The Embassy of Myanmar also requested Ministry of External Affairs for its assistance in repatriation of the aforesaid persons to Myanmar by suitable arrangements made by the Indian Government", the affidavit said.
UN Special Rapporteur on racism, Tendayi Achiume, said in a statement, "The Indian Government has an worldwide legal obligation to fully acknowledge the institutionalised discrimination, persecution, hate and gross human rights violations these people have faced in their country of origin and provide them the necessary protection".
