What is Citizenship Amendment Bill?

The Citizenship Amendment Bill is a bill designed to change the provisions of the Citizenship Act 1955.
This is called the Nagrikta Sansodhan Bill in Hindi. This is the new citizenship law

This will make it easier for Hindus from Pakishtan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan as well as Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians (non-Muslims) to Get Indian citizenship without giving Extra detail or Valid Detail

The Citizenship Amendment Bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha on 19 July 2016 and On 12 August 2016, it was referred to the Joint Parliamentary Committee and The committee Released its report on this in January 2019.

And Again ,this bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha on 9 December 2019, where it was passed by voice vote late night. Despite strong opposition, the Citizenship Amendment Bill was also passed by the government from the Rajya Sabha on 11 December 2019.

All illegal migrant Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, Sikhs, Christians and Parsis from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh will be eligible for Indian citizenship after the bill is passed by parliament and published in the President's signature and gazette.

Apart from this, people of all six religions of these three countries will also be exempted from the rule of getting Indian citizenship. All such expatriates who have been living in India for 6 years will be able to get citizenship here. Earlier this time limit was 11 years.

It is being opposed across the country because Muslims are not included in it, that is why many opposition leaders including Asaduddin Owaisi are calling Citizenship Amendment Bill Is Against The Constitution.

What changes will happen after the Citizenship Amendment (CAB) is implemented?

Here the question arises what changes will take Place in the citizenship law after the Implementation of  Citizenship Amendment Bill . I  Make You understand easily, so let me tell you In Detail

1. What is the Need Of Citizenship Amendment Bill?

The Citizenship Amendment Bill will change the Citizenship Act 1955. Under this, citizens of Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, Parsi , Jain religion coming to India from Neighbouring countries Such as Afghanishtan, Pakistan, Bangladesh will be Able To Get Indian citizenship.

 Muslims are Excluded from the list, only non-Muslims will be given Indian citizenship. This is becoming the biggest cause of controversy.

2. Will getting citizenship of India be easy?

Non-Muslim refugees from countries such as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan will come to India after this bill (CAB) is converted into law, it will be easier to get citizenship here.
 Because in this bill to get citizenship of India only one has to spend 6 years in India. The first citizenship grant was over 11 years. Now it has been reduced from 11 years to 6 years.

3. Will the period of residence in India be reduced?

As I mentioned above, where earlier refugees had to stay in India for 11 years to get citizenship of India, now they will have Only to live in 6 years.
The citizenship amendment bill has reduced the term of 11 years to 6 years. At the same time some other changes have been made under which some people will get citizenship immediately.

4. What is the bill opposing?

Opposition Parties has expressed strong opposition to this bill, because it has been biased towards religion. The new Citizenship amendment bill decides to grant citizenship to people of other religions except Muslims easily. 

The Opposition is raising this matter and terming this decision of the Modi government on the basis of religion. He says this is unconstitutional and wrong. That is why many allies of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have also opposed it. He says that this bill is meant to make Muslims feel second-class urban. Also, this would violate Article 14 of the Indian Constitution, which states the right to equality.

5. Why people Protesting in the Northeast States ? 

Recently, there was a huge protest in other states of Northeast including Assam regarding the National Register of Citizens. Soon after the NRC, the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) was introduced, which is being opposed.

 Several students in the Northeast, led by the North East Students Organization (NEO), opposed the bill. Apart from this, many other state governments are also against the Citizenship Amendment Bill.  


Already  Many changes have been made in the Citizenship Amendment Bill in 1995 and 2016 Too, But This change was different Because it has been given citizenship on the basis of caste.
