The Supreme Court will hear a batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), 2019 on September 12.

A bench of the Chief Justice of India UU Lalit and Justice Ravindra Bhat will consider over 200 petitions filed challenging the amendment.

In January 2020, a bench led by the then CJI SA Bobde issued a notice in the petitions.

It may be noted that the central government in their affidavit said that the CAA does not impinge upon any existing right that may have existed prior to the enactment of the amendment.

It was also argued that the CAA does not seek to affect the legal, democratic or secular rights of any of the Indian citizens.
