Minorities coming to Gujarat from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh will get Indian citizenship. This decision was taken by the Modi government at the Centre. Apart from Hindus, these minorities include Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians.

The Union Home Ministry issued an order in this regard on Monday (31 October 2022). This decision will benefit the minorities of these countries living in Anand and Mehsana districts of Gujarat. The Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 (CAA) has replaced the Citizenship Act of 1955 as the basis for this decision.

According to an order issued by the Union Home Ministry, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians residing in Anand and Mehsana districts of Gujarat will be allowed to register as Indian citizens under Section 5 of the Citizenship Act, 1955 or Certificate. It will be given in accordance with the provisions of Section 6 of the Act and Citizenship Rules 2009.

The central government will grant citizenship to Hindus and other minorities persecuted in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan

What will be the process of granting citizenship?

Such people residing in 2 districts of Gujarat (Anand and Mehsana) have to apply online. Collector will verify it at the district level. After that, the Collector will send his report along with the application to the Central Government. If the Collector is satisfied with the entire process, he will grant Indian citizenship to the applicant and also hand over the certificate. Besides online, a physical register will also be kept with the Collector. It shall contain details of persons registered or naturalized as citizens of the country, a copy of which shall be sent to the Central Government within a week.

Why was citizenship not given under CAA?

CAA grants Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan. As regulations under this Act have not yet been framed by the government, no one has been granted citizenship so far.

The Supreme Court on Monday gave the Assam and Tripura governments three weeks to respond to certain petitions challenging the constitutionality of the amended Citizenship Act (CAA). The next hearing in this matter has been fixed on December 6.

Earlier, the Home Ministry empowered district collectors of several districts in Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Haryana and Punjab to issue citizenship certificates to immigrants from six communities who entered India on valid documents in 2016, 2018 and 2021.
