Before the CAA(2019), India's principles of citizenship were set out in the Citizenship Act of 1955, with only minor amendments in the following 64-years. These codes were hammered out over several years between 1946 and 1955. The primary basis for citizenship was birth or residency in the territory of the Union (of India) in 1950, at the time of the declaration of the Constitution.
