What is CAA?
The Indian Citizenship Act came into force in 1955, which stipulates that under which conditions a foreign national will be granted citizenship of India. This law was recently amended. After this, its name was changed to the Citizenship Amendment Act i.e. CAA. It provides for citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Parsi, Buddhist and Christianity refugees coming from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan to India.
The refugees of these 6 religions coming from these three countries will have to stay 5 years instead of 11 years to become Indian citizens. Illegal migrants from these communities, who have entered India by 31 December 2014, can apply for citizenship.
