LOSS OF INDIAN CITIZENSHIP The Citizenship Act, 1955 also lays down the three modes by which an Indian citizen, whether a citizen at the commencement of the Constitution or subsequent to it, may lose his citizenship. These are renunciation, termination, and deprivation. 1. A renunciation is a voluntary act by which a person after acquiring the citizenship of another country gives up his Indian citizenship. 2. Termination takes place by operation of law. When an Indian citizen voluntarily acquires the citizenship of another country, he automatically ceases to be an Indian citizen. 3. Deprivation is a compulsory termination of the citizenship of India obtained by Registration or Naturalization. The citizenship is deprived on the basis of an order of the Government of India, in cases involving the acquisition of India citizenship by fraud, false representation, and concealment of a material fact or being disloyal to the Constitution, etc. Hence all statements are correct.
