Citizenship Amendment Bill Background
The Citizenship Amendment Bill was first introduced in the Lok Sabha Parliament in the month of July 2016, after which it was passed to the Joint Members Committee in August. Then after 3 years, i.e. after presenting it in the Lok Sabha in the month of January this year 2019, it was passed by the Central Government. But after this, when it was introduced in Rajya Sabha, it could not be passed by bear, and during that time the parliamentary session of Lok Sabha was also finished. Because of which this bill could not come into effect. And now, after making some more amendments, it will be presented again in both houses in this winter session.
Some Important Points of Citizenship Amendment Bill
Till now, under the Citizenship Act 1955, there was a provision that minority non-Muslim citizens from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh would get citizenship of India after staying here continuously for 11 years after entering India. But this period will be reduced after the Citizenship Amendment Bill comes. Yes, now if a citizen resides in India for 1 to 6 years, then he will be given citizenship here. A cut-off date can also be set for this, which may be December 31, 2014.
This bill also provides that the difference between those who entered India illegally and those who settled in India after suffering atrocities from these three countries can be clearly made. Let us tell you that people who are living illegally in India can be put in jail or they can be sent back to their country.
After the passing of this bill, citizens who will get citizenship of India will be able to go to any part of India. Because it will be implemented in all the states and union territories of India. Therefore, the beneficiaries will be given complete freedom like other residents of India.
The citizenship amendment bill introduced by the central government in the Lok Sabha is more likely to pass because the central government MPs are more in it. But passing the bill from Rajya Sabha will be a big challenge for the central government.
