Special Clause In CAB


A special clause will be incorporated in the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) so that Mizoram, along with Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh, is not affected by the settlement of people from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan who are granted Indian citizenship.

Union Home minister Amit Shah— in separate meetings with Mizoram chief minister Zoramthanga, NGOs and civil society organisations in Aizawl on Saturday— had assured that a kind of special clause will be incorporated in the proposed bill that will have special provision for Mizoram. The home ministry wants us to propose the special clause before the bill is introduced in Parliament.

The special clause will incorporate the ILP, he added. The three states are governed by the Inner Line Permit (ILP) system that regulates the entry of people from other states.
