The Centre’s notification of rules for the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) on March 11, 2024, sets forth the framework for granting Indian citizenship to undocumented non-Muslim migrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan, facing religious persecution. This move comes after the act’s passage in December 2019 and amidst significant controversy and opposition, particularly regarding its perceived discriminatory nature. The CAA aims to simplify the citizenship process for persecuted non-Muslim minorities, including Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis, and Christians, and introduces an online application system to modernize and facilitate access to citizenship applications.
