Sir,
If your father was a french citizen domiciled with his family in a foreign country other than Indian Union, during the period of option, he will conserve his french nationality. To become Indian he had to make option in the Indian Embassy of the county where he had domicile. Yours sincerely,

Sir,
Congratulations for getting CNF. I think that you have not well presented your case in this site. In french nastionality matter,every thisg is considered according to french law. No room for divine grace. You may get ascertained whether the reasoning given in your CNF by the Greffier en chef is correct. If there is an error the French consulate will notice and report the same to the Procureur de la Republique at Nantes (France) to file a suit for cancellation of the certificate of french nationality, Be careful. Yours sincerely

Sir,
French enclaves in India were Pondicherry (capital), Karikal, Chandernagore, Mahe and yanaon. After Independance of India in 1947, the people (Bengalies) of Chandernagore situated in West Bemgal separated themselves in 1949 and merged with Indian Union, Thereafter on l.11.1954 France left amicably
left Fr.India by handing over the administration only
It is called defacto transfer having no legal effect,
Tnen, on 28.5.1956 the Governments of France and India entered into a treaty of dejure transfer of French India into Indian Union. This treasty came into force on 16.08.1962. It is from this date has run the period of six months given to french citizens born in Fr.India, aged 18 years (completed) and residing in Fr.India of Indian Union, to give in writing in the French consulate general of France at Pondicherry a declaration to conserve their french nationality. There is no change in nationality for those who have opted. The non optants lost their french nationality and became Indians from 16.8.1962. The renoncants had no special privilege under the above treaty in the matter of nationality, Yours sincerely.
