CAA-2019 rules say that the CAA application will have to be submitted in electronic form to an empowered committee through the district-level committee, which may be notified by the central government, and be supported by documents.

The rules state that these documents will be admissible even beyond their validity period.

Applicants also have to provide proof that they entered India before December 31, 2014, which can take the form of either a visa and immigration stamp, registration certificate from the Foreigners Regional Registration Officer (FRRO), or slip issued by the Census enumerators in India , government-issued licence or certificate or permit in India (including Driving License, Aadhaar number, ration card , or marriage certificate issued in India etc).

The rules also state the applicants will have to provide an eligibilty certificate issued by a locally reputed community institution confirming that he/she belongs to “Hindu/ Sikh/ Buddhist/ Jain/ Parsi/ Christian community and continues to be a member of the community.

The applicant who has applied for grant of citizenship by registration or naturalisation will be issued a digital certificate of registration. Ink signed copy of the certificate of registration or naturalisation will be issued only if the applicant has opted for the same at the application stage and this will have to be collected by the applicant from the office of the Empowered Committee i.e. the office of the Director (Census Operations) of the State/Union Territory concerned located in the State/ UT capital.
The new CAA portal will help those who are eligible to apply under new CAA law without any state government's intervention and will weed out corruption as witnessed in several cases of long-term visa (LTV) grants. LTV is given to eligible Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi or Christian migrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh or Pakistan. However, several state governments including West Bengal, Kerala, Punjab, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Bihar have adopted resolutions against CAA.

What is CAA Law for Indian Citizenship

CAA aims to facilitate grant of citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi or Christian migrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh or Pakistan who came to India on or before December 31, 2014. CAA also facilitates citizenship for those who had been exempted by the Centre by or under clause (c) of sub-section (2) of section 3 of the Passport (Entry into India) Act, 1920, or from the application of the provisions of the Foreigners Act, 1946, or any rule or order made there under.

It is worth noting that CAA does not apply to Indian citizens. Accordingly, it does not in any way take away or abridge the rights of any Indian citizen. The present legal process of acquiring Indian citizenship by any foreigner of any category as provided in the Citizenship Act, 1955, is operational and CAA does not amend or alter this legal position in any manner. Furthermore, CAA has excluded areas under Sixth Schedule and areas covered by Inner Line Permit under Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873.
