Mizoram Maintenance of Household Registers Bill, 2019

  • 21/03/2019
  •  The Mizoram Assembly has passed a bill that seeks to detect “illegal migrants” at the village and town level in the state and bring in punitive measures for those making false statement during the exercise.
  •  The exercise is aimed at Chakma residents, who are often suspected to be illegal migrants from neighbouring Bangladesh. Organisations representing the Chakmas, however, said they were discriminated and harassed in the name of detection of illegal migrants in the state.
