CAA Website live: Website launched to take citizenship under CAA, apply this way

Citizenship Amendment Act Apply: After the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 under CAA, it has started being criticized by the opposition. Many questions might be arising in the minds of people about minority citizens who came after being displaced from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to get Indian citizenship.

CAA website goes live: As soon as the CAA notification was issued late on Monday evening, the Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019 came into force in the country. The Central Government has taken this step just 1-2 months before the Lok Sabha elections. In such a situation, it is also being criticized from the opposition. Opposition parties are calling it politically motivated. Amidst all this, various kinds of questions might be arising in people’s minds regarding this law. This is especially important for those minorities who have come to India after being displaced from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan and want citizenship here. Without further ado, the Union Home Ministry on Tuesday launched a portal for people eligible to apply for Indian citizenship. Home Ministry spokesperson said that persons eligible under CAA-2019 can apply for citizenship on this portal. The process will be completely online. A mobile app ‘CAA-2019’ will also be released soon to facilitate application through mobile ‘app’.
