ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF HOME AFFAIRS (SHRI AJAY MAKEN)

(a) to (c): A proposal to enact a legislation to provide for the establishment of an effective system to protect refugees and asylum seekers both before and after the grant of asylum and matters connected therewith is under consideration. Since a final view has not been taken in the matter so far, it is not possible to indicate the time frame by which the legislation will be introduced in the Parliament. Details of citizens from other countries living in India as refugees are not centrally maintained.
