Citizenship will be linked to the birth certificate, included in PM Modi’s action plan

Linking birth certificates to citizenship, pushing for new jobs during trade agreements and enacting an environmental law are some of the tasks Prime Minister Narendra Modi has set as targets for his tenure.

The English newspaper ‘The Indian Express’ writes in its report that after the meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with all the ministries and departments on 18 September, the central government has prepared a 60-point action plan.

The newspaper writes that the action plan document it has received reads, “There has been no document for citizenship in India so far. Citizenship can now be linked to the birth certificate.”

A top central government official says that ‘action inputs’ have been sent to all secretaries.
Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba, in a separate letter to all secretaries on September 20, asked them to take “immediate action” on the directions of the Prime Minister and ensure that it is “implemented in time”.
