you said:"My Grand father is an Indian National from pondicherry but My Grand mother is French citizen from pondicherry, So all of their sons and daughters got French citizenship except my dad born on 20.02.1962. I was born on 29.04.1989" In your case the previous reply will stand.It is difficult to answer your question while relying only on your oral statement. As you report that except your dad all othr sons and daughters of your grand parents are french citizens, they may know well your case and they are the better persons to advise you. Yours sincerely

Can I get French Nationality

My grandfather(mother's father) was born in Cygon and had French Nationality. My mother did not apply for nationality due to ignorance but she was born and brought up in Pondicherry. I was born in 1963 in Pondicherry and I live here as well. One of my maternal uncle expired when he was in the French military and 2 of my other maternal uncles are french citizens.Can I apply for French Nationality?
