What is CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act)?

CAA bill was introduced in Lok Sabha on 9 December 2016, got passed on December 10th. Later on, got passed in Rajya Sabha on 11th December. The Bill originally seeks to amend Citizenship Act 1955 which deals with the conditions by which a person holds nationality of India. According to this Act any person born in India between 1950 and 1987 automatically acquire Indian citizenship irrespective of the nationality of their parents. And similarly, those born between 1987 to 2004 also become Indian citizens if any one of their parents is an Indian citizen. There is a provision of voluntary acquisition of citizen, relinquishment, dual citizenship and even overseas citizenship. Minimum requirement for citizenship by naturalisation is that the person must have stayed in India for the past 12 years. 

Now CAA 2019  allows migrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan who belong to religious minorities of those countries (like Hindu, Sikh, Parsi, Buddhist, Jain and other non-Muslims) to get Indian Citizenship. Those who arrive in India on or before 2014 are eligible if they have spent last 5 years in India. The idea behind this religious discrimination is that since these neighbouring countries are highly Muslim dominated it is almost impossible that Muslims shall face any religious persecution for which they need to seek refuge from India. 

However, it is to be noted that migrants residing in Schedule tribe dominated and Tribal areas  like parts of Assam, Tripura, Mizoram and whole of  Meghalaya shall not get such opportunity since it will threaten the residential communities status.

How can one accquire Indian Citizenship?

According to Indian Citizenship Act 1955, following sections deal with provision of Indian citizenship:

Citizenship Section Meaning
Prohibiting illegal migrants Section 2( sub section 1) clause ‘b’ Defining illegal migrants who are prohibited from acquiring Indian citizenshp
Citizenship by Birth Section 3 By simply being born in India
by Descent Section 4 If one or both of parents are Indian citizens
Citizenship by Registration Section 5 By application for registration
Citizenship by Naturalisation Section 6 After spending 12 years in India
By incorporation of territory Section 7 If any territory becomes part of India, the residents living in that territory

If  a foreigner wants to become citizen of India they shall apply for it under section 5 and 6. There are certain conditions that they have to satisfy like time period of 12 years according to old regime.
