Govt Launches Portal For Those Seeking Indian Citizenship Under CAA



NEW DELHI, Mar 12: The Ministry of Home Affairs on Tuesday launched a portal for people eligible to apply for Indian citizenship under the Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019, an official spokesperson said.

  The move came a day after the Government notified rules for implementation of the CAA 2019.

“The Citizenship (Amendment) Rules, 2024 under the CAA-2019 have been notified. A new portal has been launched, persons eligible under CAA-2019 can apply for citizenship on this portal indiancitizenshiponline.Nic.In,” the spokesperson said.
