Tripura government establishes committee for citizenship grant under CAA

Director Reang stated that residents residing in Sixth Schedule areas (Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council) are ineligible to apply for citizenship under the Act.

The director of the Tripura Civil Service (TCS), R Reang, IAS, has directed all district judges to propose a Tripura Civil Service (TCS) officer as an invitee for the District Level Committee, according to an official notification.

CAA Implementation:

This action is a component of the larger endeavour to handle applications for citizenship under the modified statute.

The notification, referencing a communication from RD. Meena, Director (Citizenship) at the Ministry of Home Affairs, reads, “With reference to the subject cited above, I am to inform you that RD Meena, Director (Citizenship), Govt of India, MHA, Foreigners Division (Citizenship Wing), has intimated the Director of Census Operations of all States/UTs regarding the constitution of the District Level Committee in connection with the implementation of CAA, 2019 for processing citizenship applications under Section 6B of the Citizenship Act, 1955.”

“In this regard, you are requested to nominate one TCS officer who shall be an invitee of the District Level Committee for the purpose of processing citizenship applications under Section 6B of the Citizenship Act, 1955. The name of the said officer may kindly be sent to this directorate at the earliest,” it said.

The Tripura government’s undersecretary, S Debbarma, emphasised the importance of the nominations in a separate directive.

Debbarma stressed the urgency of taking fast action in his correspondence with the District Magistrates, asking that the data of the nominated officers be sent right away so that they can be submitted to the Ministry of Home Affairs.

The administration’s dedication to the prompt implementation of the CAA is demonstrated by the anonymous confirmation of the appointment procedure by a Tripura government official.

The Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 seeks to offer citizenship to non-Muslim immigrants who came to India prior to December 31, 2014, from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan.

States are getting ready to implement the act’s provisions under public scrutiny and political conversations. The act has generated a great deal of controversy and differing reactions across the nation.

With these appointments, Tripura is taking a significant step towards the practical execution of the CAA, which seeks to expedite the state’s legal processing of applications from qualified individuals.
