Oh, you meant you and I were both thinking of the same person! (Duh! where's that "dope slap" smiley?) Yeah, I suspect you're right.

If what he says is true, then he qualifies, he is not trying to extend the definition. Also, residence isn't one of the qualifications, only the holding of a passport in the past, birth in India and marriage to an Indian citizen qualifies.

Here is the relevant subsection:

"He/she or either of his/her parents or grandparents or great grandparents was born in and permanently resident in India as defined in the Government of India Act, 1935 and other territories that became part of India thereafter provided neither was at any time a citizen of any country as may be specified by the Central Government from time to time;"

The reference to a citizen of notified countries is to exclude Pakistani and Bangladeshi citizens.

i suspect his mom, even though she may have been born in India (I suspect during British rule), may have never become an Indian citizen. Was Indian citizenship even offered during british rule? I wonder..

If India is a racist country, would it have taken in the tibetens fleeing Tibet?

Generally the anglo Indians in India were hoping to move to England as they considered it their "homeland" -- even though they had never been there. However, the east india company policy had strict rules against the british intermarrying or having mixed race children. Now, who are the racists?

From the Capt's link:

Quote:
Originally, under Regulation VIII of 1813, they were excluded from the British legal system and in Bengal became subject to the rule of Mohammedan law outside Calcutta - and yet found themselves without any caste or status amongst those who were to judge them.

It has already been established that the requirements for PIO are not 'racial' in the genetic sense.

However, whatever country you choose to take as an example will have visa/immigration rules and or policy that favour persons from some countries and dis-favour those from others. Whilst it may or may not be possible to get the genetic racist tag to stick for the chosen example country, once the 'racist' card get played its going to echo around like in a room with parallel mirrors!
