Answer

Correct Option is None

Statement 1 is not correct: Though the Indian Constitution is federal and envisages a dual polity (Centre and states), it provides for only single citizenship, that is, the Indian citizenship (like in Canada). The citizens in India owe allegiance only to the Union. There is no separate state citizenship. The other federal states like USA and Switzerland, on the other hand, adopted the system of double citizenship. Statement 2 is not correct: In India, both a citizen by birth as well as a naturalised citizen is eligible for the office of President while in the USA, only a citizen by birth and not a naturalized citizen is eligible for the office of President.
