Abstract

Citizenship is a privilege as it brings many rights and provides protection from the government. But refugees being out of their countries becomes like stateless people. The CAA, 2019, is a law enforced to give citizenship to refugees living in India but it has been opposed and criticized on several grounds. The law is a good step toward the recognition of refugees. The law gives citizenship to refugees who will give them an identity in the country as being a non-citizen make their lives poor and also becomes a hindrance to the enjoyment of basic rights.
