Asylum seekers can own property
Jul 14, 2016

The Union Cabinet has approved proposals for extending several benefits to “persecuted” minorities from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh living in India on long-term visas.

They can now take up self-employment, buy property, open bank accounts and get driving licences, PAN card and Aadhaar.

As approved by the Union Cabinet, the beneficiaries can buy property for self-occupation or use in self-employment. They are allowed free movement within the State of their stay, and can get their long-term visa papers transferred from one State to another.

“The Collector or District Magistrate would be empowered to authorise an officer not below the rank of Sub-divisional Magistrate for administering the oath of allegiance to the applicant,” for  granting citizenship.
