Supreme Court begins hearing on pleas challenging Citizenship Amendment Act

CJI expresses unhappiness over the crowd in the court. 144 cases are listed today for hearing. Attorney General KK Venugopal, SG Tushar Mehta and Sr Adv Kapil Sibal also echo the CJI's concerns.

Senior Counsel Kapil Sibal tells the Court that there is also a question of whether the matter should be heard by a larger Bench. CJI Bobde says, "Maybe it should."

Sibal points out that the process of NPR is scheduled to start in April. He adds that this process should maybe be rescheduled for later.

Senior Counsel Vikas Singh urges for interim order today itself and raises the issue of the situation in Assam. CJI SA Bobde tells him to serve a copy of the petition to the Centre if he wants to argue on the question

CJI Bobde: We are not going to pass an ex parte order without the copy being served to the Centre

Vikas Singh says there is a unique situation in Assam. When the cut-off date was extended from 1948 to 1971, it was challenged before the Court and the same is pending, to be considered by a Constitution Bench

Singh says that there was an understanding that prior to 1971, there was persecution and the persecuted persons have come. "But there is no justification for people coming after 1971"

Rajeev Dhavan makes a suggestion - Petitioners be heard on two questions: 1. Whether the matter needs to be heard by a Constitution Bench; and 2. Would there be an irreversible situation?

Indira Jaising says, "Priorities will have to be set, My Lord".

Sibal suggests that in the meantime, the process of NPR may be postponed by a few months.

AG Venugopal opposes the suggestion of "stay". Sibal says they are not seeking a stay on the Act, but merely a postponement of a process under the Act

CJI Bobde to Sibal, "You are asking for a stay without using the express words of stay

Attorney General KK Venugopal says, Centre has prepared a preliminary affidavit that will be filed today. AM Singhvi says, UP has started the process, it is irrevocable as once citizenship is granted it can’t be taken back.

Justice Kaul enquires whether the Constituent Assembly was transient in character and that maybe the Central Government had to take action because the State did not

CJI says, we may ask govt to issue some temporary permits for the time being. AG asks court to freeze filing further petitions, as over 140 petitions have been filed&others who wish to be heard, may file intervention application.
