The second copy is not a true copy of the first one.
The attestation entries may differ if the attestors are not the same in both the copies. What is important is that the text io both the copies should be the same. Yours sincerely,

You were born in Pondicherry on 30.06.1965. Born in India, you can be a french national if your father or mother was french national at the time of your birth, Your fatjer was born in Pondicherry in 1940. He should have opted to conserve french nationality under the Franco Indian treaty, 1956. Otherwise he will become Indian, Please study your case and then act. This site is not for guiding and helping you how to get french nationality, It is your personal matter. You have to contact a french lawyer, Yours sincerely,

Your were born in Tamil Nadu on 9.9.1062 ie, after de jure cession of French India to Indan Union on 16.08.1962.
To apply for CNF you have to prove that your father or mother was a french nastional at the time of your birth (date of death of your father not given)
If Your mother born in Tamil Nadu (date of birth not given)) married before 16.8.1962 a french national, she will acquire french nationality by marriage and conserve the same (date of her marriage is not also given). The officer in charge of issuing CNF will not accept your mother's birth certificate
as obtained by court order at her age of 71 years after a long gap.
Your mother has to prove that your father was a french national with necessary doucments to claim for CNF by her marriage Yours sincerely

First of all, you take steps for rectification of the wrong entry in the marriage certificate of your parents, by way of court judgment/order. If your mother's paents are natives of Indian Union, your mother will acquire the french nationality of your father, by her marriage. She need not make option,
Without knowing your date and place birth, I cannot
say whether you are elegible to get CNF. Yours sincerely

For Hindus, muslims and christians, etat civil registers are in maintained in duplicate for each year, of which one is kept in the etat civil and another is sent to the concnerned Greffe (court secretariat). For the renoncants the said registers are in triplicate. one of them is sent every year to the central service of etat civil at Nantes. As per franco indian treaty of cession, 1956 the etat civil registers shall be conserved according to the law in force on 16.8.1962 and certfied copies be issued. Yours sincerely
