No stay on CAA, NPR: SC
No stay on CAA, NPR: SC

New Delhi, Jan 22 (TIWN) The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to pass any order to restrain the operation of Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) or National Population Register (NPR).

Attorney General KK Venugopal, appearing for the Centre, told the bench that the government has been given copies of around 60 pleas out of the 144 petitions. He said it wanted time to respond to pleas which have not been served on it.

The Supreme Court clubbed together all pleas concerning the states of Assam and Tripura together as both these states have separate agreements with the Centre regarding the preservation of native people. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal has been asked by the court to assist in segragating these please. 

However, there seems to be some confusion over whether or not these pleas will be heard separately from the rest of the petitions. According to Bar and Bench, the Supreme Court has segregated these pleas for its own benefit and all the matters will be heard together.
