Centre notifies implementation of Citizenship Amendment Act

The ministry of home affairs has notified the Citizenship Amendment Act’s (CAA) rules today, paving the way for the law’s implementation across the country.

The law aims to give citizenship to non-Muslim migrants from these countries, who came to India before December 31, 2014.

The law makes it easier for Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, Christian and Parsi refugees from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan, to get Indian citizenship.

After the law was enacted in 2019, protests had broken out in several parts of the country.

Last month, Amit Shah said that no one can stop the CAA law.

“This will be implemented before the elections…this is the law of the country, no one can stop it, this is set in stone, this is the reality,” he had said at an event.

Amit Shah had also said that the CAA was an act of the country. He assured the minorities that the law will not snatch away anyone’s citizenship.
