Individuals belonging to minority communities from Pakistan and staying in India on a long-term visa may soon be allowed to purchase property, get PAN/ Aadhaar cards and even open bank accounts.

According to a Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) notification, the government is also considering a proposal to reduce the fees for registration as citizens of India from Rs 15,000 to Rs 100. The proposal also includes simplifying the procedures to grant Indian citizenship to such individuals.
