Indian Citizenship: “The State is a compound made of citizens; and this compels us to consider who should properly be called a citizen and what a citizen really is. The nature of Citizenship like that of the State, is a question which is often disputed; there is no general agreement on a single definition; the man who is a citizen in democracy is often not one in an oligarchy.” – Aristotle

National citizenship remains an essential and enduring feature of modern life in terms of politics and elections, welfare state benefits, all round integration etc. Articles 5 to 9 of the Constitution determine who Indian citizens at the commencement of the Constitution are. Article 10 provides for their continuance as such citizens subject to the provisions of any law that may be made by Parliament. Article 11 entrust the Parliament with powers to regulate the right of citizenship.
