Question: My mother has an OCI card.C an I also get an OCI card if I have citizenship of Nepal?


Raju Kanumuri: If your mother has an OCI card and she was a citizen of India before she became the citizen of another country, If this is true, you certainly qualify for an OCI card. In fact, even your children and grandchildren qualify for OCI cards. according to India government act “The Central Government may, subject to such conditions and restrictions, as may be prescribed, on an application made in this behalf, register as Overseas Citizen of India cardholder any person of full age and capacity, who is a child or a grandchild or a great-grandchild of a person who was a citizen of India.”
Overseas Citizenship of India is granted to applicants who have acquired citizenship of a foreign country and who were of Indian Origin, or were or are eligible to become a citizen of India, or are a spouse of an OCI / PIO Holder or a spouse of Citizen of India. Under the Indian Citizenship Act, persons of Indian Origin are not allowed to claim dual citizenship.
