Supreme Court agrees to hear plea challenging constitutional validity of Citizenship (Amendment) Act

Supreme Court
The Supreme Court today agreed to hear a plea challenging the constitutional validity of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act filed by journalist Saket Gokhale.
 
The three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice S A Bobde and justices B R Gavai and Surya Kant issued a notice to the Centre on Gokhale's plea and tagged it along with more than 160 petitions challenging the CAA which are listed for hearing this month.

The apex court, while hearing a batch of 143 petitions on January 22, had made it clear that the operation of the CAA will not be stayed. It had also said the modalities of hearing the batch of petitions on the CAA will be decided in-chamber and the court may fix them for day-to-day hearing.

The court had also said that pleas concerning Tripura and Assam, as well as the matters related to Uttar Pradesh, which is going ahead with the implementation of CAA without framing any rules, can be dealt with separately.
