The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) will modify the citizenship portal to accept expired passports and visas as supporting documents for processing citizenship applications for members of six minority communities from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh: Hindu, Sikh, Parsi, Christian, Buddhist, and Jain.

The MHA’s citizenship portal only presently accepts expired passports from Pakistani and Afghani Hindu and Sikh applicants who entered India before December 31, 2009, as supporting documentation. After allegations of corruption during manual screening surfaced in 2018, all citizenship procedures were transferred online.
