What Is Caa Rules in India

The Home Office (MHA) told Parliament on Tuesday that it had asked for another six months to establish the rules for the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). The MHA said: „The subordinate legislative committees, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, have been asked to grant a further extension of the deadline until January 9, 2022 to formulate the rules under the Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019,“ Rai said. But as the new protests are about to begin, there is still uncertainty about when the AAC will be implemented. The Interior Ministry missed its June deadline to finalize the rules of the law, asking for three more months, citing the COVID-19 situation. According to the Manual on Parliamentary Work, in the event that ministries/departments are unable to establish the rules within the prescribed period of six months after the adoption of a law, ministries/departments should „request from the Subordinate Legislation Committee an extension indicating the reasons for such an extension“, which may not exceed three months. New Delhi passed a law in 2019 to designate „real“ Indian citizens, sparking violent protests. What is the status of the legislation one year later? For the fifth time, the government has received an extension for the development of these rules. According to the Handbook on Parliamentary Work, the rules of each piece of legislation must be formulated within six months of the Speaker`s approval, or an extension of time must be requested. Alongside the drafting of an amendment to the Citizenship Act 1955, the BJP government completed an attempt to update the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the state of Assam. The central government has requested an extension until January 9 to set the rules for the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which was passed by parliament in 2019, Interior Minister Nityanand Rai told the Lok Sabha on Tuesday. This is the fifth extension requested by the government for the development of these rules.

„I`m a day labourer trying to make ends meet. I couldn`t afford to take a stand at the CAA. I didn`t know I was going to lose my wife at CAA,“ said Ali, a father of four, adding that he now supports what Farida stands for. „This is an anti-Muslim law. It is not a prospect. . This is an objective reality. And combined with the National Population Register (NPR) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC), it even tears up what remains of the pretext of Indian secularism and the constitution,“ writer and political activist Arundhati Roy told DW. Two years after Parliament passed the Citizenship (CAA) Amendment Act 2019, the Ministry of the Interior (MHA) has yet to release the rules of the law.

Legislation cannot be implemented without notifying the rules. The ministry had already written to subordinate legislation committees in both chambers to grant an extension until January 9, 2022 to formulate the rules. He responded to a question from Congressman Gaurav Gogoi about whether the government had missed the deadline for drafting and communicating CAA rules and the steps taken in this regard. „Eligible persons covered by the law amending the Citizenship Law can file citizenship applications after the relevant rules have been communicated by the central government,“ he said in a written response to a request to Rajya Sabha. .
