Hey everybody this is Priya! and you are watching Finology Legal

In the previous we have learnt that the Citizenship issue in India has been discussed in two places

First in Constitution of India and in Citizenship act

In our constitution, the citizenship issue has been discussed from Article no.5 to 11

But this whole part answers only 1 question, that is on 26 January 1950 who all will be known as Indian citizens

Apart from that one question all other questions are discussed in The Citizenship Act

And recognizing by Marks perspective or exam purpose, for the citizenship issue

The Citizenship Act is more important than the Constitution for exam purpose

So in today's video we will cover this Act

Now we will see what this Citizenship act does ?

So basically this act tells about 5 ways of Acquisition and 3 ways of Loss

The 5 ways of Acquisition is like (Varun Dhavan's movie Badrinath ki Dulhania) that is "BDRIN"

BDRIN - Birth, Descent, Registration, Incorporation of territory and Naturalization

And the 3 ways of Loss are - Renunciation, Termination and Deprivaiton

these 3 ways of loss are very simple and easy, the important part is the 5 ways of Acquisition

and the process of Naturalisation is very important , so lets get started with this

And if you feel that the Amendment Act of 2019 is only important then it is not like that

Citizenship amendment act incorporates many and major amendment acts

in which very important acts of year 1986, 1992 2003, and 2005 amendment acts

Quickly we will see that what was so special about these amendment acts

So before 1986 the act says that if any person take birth in India he will be liable to get Indian Citizenship
