If you are in Pondicherry without profession and resources, you can ask at the age of 60 years for financial secours in the Fr. consulate general at Pondicherry, Yours sincerely

You were born in 1952 and a minor on 16.08.1962, date of Independance of Fr. India. So you are governed by the franco indian treaty, 1956. According to the said treaty if your father was born in Fr.India he should have opted to conserve french nationality and included your name in the said declaration. He did not do so and became Indian.So, You followed his condition and became Indian. You have not mentioned your place of your birth,to be more complete my reply,
In the case of your wife, she was born in 1963 after independance of Fr.India. So she has to prove that at the time of her birth, her parents were french. You say that they did not opt for fr. nationality and became Indians. In these conditions your wife cannot claim for fr.nationality.
Relying on your details this reply is given, It will be more accurate, if given after examining your papers and discussion tete a tete,. Yours sincerely

Dear Kichenamourty,
I was born in 1952. Both my parents were Indian after the 1962 treaty. But my maternal grandparents were French. My parents didn't take the option of French during the treaty. On the other side, my wife was born in 1963 and my wife's grandparents were also French and her parents didn't take the option of French during the treaty. Both are renoncant families. We even have proof of their birth, marriage and death certificates and proof of voter id, carte d'identité of my wife's grandmother and few more supporting documents. Is it possible to do anything with these?
