The US said it is “closely monitoring” the CAA’s implementation in India and is “concerned.”

Undocumented non-Muslim migrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan who arrived in India prior to December 31, 2014, can now apply for citizenship according to the CAA.

The notification of the Citizenship Amendment Act’s (CAA) regulations in India has drawn attention from the United States, as stated on Thursday. The US is actively observing the act’s implementation, according to State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller.

In response to a query at a daily briefing, Miller stated, “We are concerned about the notice of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act on March 11.

The CAA, a law that offers citizenship to undocumented non-Muslim migrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan who entered India before December 31, 2014, was put into effect by the central government led by the Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday. Four years after the law was passed by Parliament in December 2019, the development took place.
