#CAA: Notice in fresh Citizenship Amendment Act petition – Supreme Court

21-05-2020

Notice has been issued in a batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA) by the Supreme Court of India.

The petition was tagged along with the other 160 petitions pending considering before the Supreme Court. The instant pleas had been filed earlier in the year in February 2020 but came to be listed before the Supreme Court now, owing to the lockdown situation and restricted functioning of the Court.

In the petition an interim order is prayed as to counteract the conflict between provisions of the CAA & the Assam Accord of 1956. The bench refused to grant interim protection and instead issued notice.
