The CAA syllabus has been divided into five parts while the one on Article 370 and 35A has six parts.
This is an exercise to make people aware about the CAA and Article 370 and 35A, the VC said.
The course explains the complete process and importance of the abrogation of Article 370 and the logic behind bringing the Citizenship Amendment Act, he said.
