MHA seeks more time to frame rules under CAA

By IndianMandarins- 11 Jan 2022


New Delhi (11.01.2022): The Union Home Ministry has approached the parliamentary committees seeking more time for framing rules under the CAA through which the Modi government wants to grant Indian nationality to non-Muslim migrants from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, said an official.

The Citizenship Amendment Act was passed by Parliament on December 11, 2019, and the Presidential nod was received the next day. Subsequently, it was notified by the home ministry. However, the law is yet to be implemented as rules under the CAA are yet to be framed.

Since the home ministry could not frame rules within six months of the enactment of the CAA, it sought time for the committees — first in June 2020 and then four more times.

The fifth extension came to an end on Monday. “We have approached the parliamentary committees seeking more time. Hopefully, we will get the extension,” a home ministry official said.
