Citizenship - Samriddhi Banerjee

About Citizenship 

Every person who was at the commencement of the Constitution (26 January 1950) domiciled in the territory of India, and (a) who was born in India, or (b) either of whose parents were born in India, or (c) who has been ordinarily resident in India for not less than five years, became a citizen of INDIA.

What do we mean by Citizenship? 

Citizenship is gained by meeting the legal requirements of a national, state, or local government. A nation grants certain rights and privileges to its citizens. In return, citizens are expected to obey their country's laws and defend it against its enemies. The value of citizenship varies from nation to nation.

Why is Citizenship important? 

Being a recognised citizen of a country has many legal benefits, which may include – depending on the country – the rights to vote, to hold public office, to social security, to health services, to public education, to permanent residency, to own land, or to engage in employment, amongst others.

What is Citizenship and its types?

Modern citizenship can be divided into two main categories: birthright (or jus soli) citizenship and acquired (or naturalized) citizenship. Citizenship at birth is automatically granted to those born within a particular country's border.
