CHENNAI: Union external affairs minister S Jaishankar on Friday said there are a lot of complications in providing dual citizenship to Indians settled abroad.
Interacting with entrepreneurs at ‘TAKEPRIDE 2023’, the 20th Young Indians National Summit organised by the CII in Chennai, Jaishankar said: “There are security and economic challenges (in providing dual citizenship).There are challenges as to Indians living in which countries should be provided dual citizenship.”

The external affairs minister said, “The OCI (Overseas Citizenship of India) is the step to bridge the demand. But the debate (on dual citizenship) is still alive.” He was replying to a question posed by one of the participants about the ease of doing business for Indian entrepreneurs settled in India and the prospects of providing dual citizenship for them.

In reply to another question on the recent announcement of Union home minister Amit Shah on reservation of 24 seats in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and possibility of holding elections there, Jaishankar said it was “reaffirmation of sovereignty of India”. He said, “The mechanism (of holding elections) is complicated, but the basic message has been sent and it is loud.”
Earlier, at the summit, Jaishankar said whenever he thinks of India, he remembers about the three ‘Ts’ that are shaping the country – talent, tech and tradition.
