Registration for dual citizenship begins

New Delhi, November 11, 2004

The wait is over, finally. Indian embassies have begun the process of granting dual citizenship to Indian expatriates.

On November 1, the Indian Embassy in Australia registered Manu R Jehu, the first PIO to be listed for dual citizenship, in the presence of Overseas Indian Affairs Minister Jagdish Tytler.

"The registration forms are available at Indian embassies of the 16 selected countries. We are getting lot of applications and queries," says Tytler.

Announcing the programme for the third Pravasi Bhartiya Divas, Tytler said that there would be plenary sessions with UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, External Affairs Minister Natwar Singh, and Finance Minister P Chidambaram among other senior cabinet ministers.

The diaspora meet will start on January 7 at the National Centre for Performing Arts in Mumbai.

There are parallel sessions planned on issues like NRIs in Gulf, diaspora youth, ethnic media, education, healthcare etc. The ministry also plans an internship programme for the diaspora youth.

There seems to be some wrong information about the Dual citizenship status of India born Canadians. If you were born in India and took citizenship, you do NOT automatically become eligible for Dual citizenship. Each Request for Indian Citizenship is granted on a "CASE BY CASE " basis. In other words, you will need to surrender your Indian Passport when you get Canadian Citizenship.

You will then have to apply for Indian citizenship. Let's not go by what the media (in this case, newspapers in India) say. There is a lot of difference between what is said in press releases, and the fine print (conditions attached). Besides, let us not forget that it has taken over 2 years for the Indian Government to finalize the dual citizenship issue.

Call the Indian consulate here,for clear and precise information about this.(Pray that your call doesn't go to an answering machine, and the guy on the line has the required info !)

Good luck guys!
