Anyone born in India before 1987 or whose parents were born before 1987 are bona fide Indian citizens according to the law and need not worry due to the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 (CAA) or a possible countrywide NRC, top MHA officials said on Friday.
According to the 2004 amendments of the Act, people of the country, barring those in Assam, whose one parent is an Indian and neither is an illegal immigrant are also considered Indian citizens. In the case of Assam, the cut off date for identification of an Indian citizen is 1971.
