The document reviewed by ET has answers to a list of 15 ‘critical questions’ on CAA, with the last five meant for likely beneficiaries. A BJP functionary said the document was meant to clarify legal and legitimacy issues and answers questions raised on the constitutional validity of the amendment.
“The rules of the Act are still being framed and we are certain that they will be done only after thorough consultations. We have already intensified our outreach to refugees and have seen a lot of excitement among them. They want the process to begin soon,” the functionary said, adding the rules need not necessarily be exactly what the party document has suggested.
The administration could assess whether persecuted minorities from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh entered India on or before December 31, 2014, based on “any documentary evidence,” and adds that this was required “as per the Third Schedule of the Act.” On apprehensions that refugees availing benefits under welfare schemes could lose them, the paper says the refugees “shall not be deprived of such rights and privileges even during the pendency.”
On refugees living in northeast the BJP document says “people living in these excluded areas can make an application from other areas of the country where the amendment is applicable and shall receive consequential rights attached with the citizenship from that place only".
