Questions Answered by Advocate Sohail Haque

Q: Indian Citizenship for Child Born in Canada

Hi, my wife & I are Indian citizens living in Canada. Being born in Canada, our child is a Canadian citizen by birth. However, we wish to live in India & have Indian citizenship for her. Can we get her Canadian passport & OCI/visa now and apply for her Indian citizenship (by descent) when we are back to India? What is the process? Please note that Canadian govt. doesn't allow parents to renounce Canadian citizenship for a minor.

Advocate Sohail Haque answered
1. Parents seeking to register birth of their minor child born outside India can submit an application under Section 4(1) of the Citizenship Act, 1955 in Form I to the Indian Consulate in any country together with a declaration that the child does not hold passport of any other country.2. Under the citizenship Act, all babies born in Canada are automatically granted Canadian citizenship except for children of foreign diplomats. 3. To renounce Canadian citizenship, one must be atleast 18 years, not live in Canada and prove that he/she will become a citizen of another country once application to renounce is approved.In the limited circumstances stated by you and in my opinion you must submit a letter to the Indian Consulate in Canada explaining your present situation and your desire to obtain citizenship for your child in future. Make sure you retain an acknowledgment receipt of the said letter. Thereafter, you may act as per the response of the Indian Consulate or wait until your child attains 18 to apply for Indian Citizenship by descent.Regards,Sohail HaqueAdvocate CounselLL.M (LONDON) & NCA QUALIFIED (CANADA).

Q: Breaking the rules Training Agreement

Sir,After my graduation i have signed a training agreement in Rs 10 Non judicial paper of Rs 250000 for 3 years after completion of training. The training was of 5 months.

Advocate Sohail Haque answered
Dear Querist,First of all check the terms & conditions of your training Agreement with a special emphasis on the termination clause. Most of the times these companies execute agreements which contains loop holes and they are basically executed to scare the employees without the company being able to and/or capable of executing the Agreement in a judicial forum.However, if the Agreement is well drafted and has the appropriate clause then the company can seek both civil and criminal actions against you.But as a matter of conscience when you have with your free will have executed the Agreement you morally ought to abide by the Agreement and cannot just whimsically think of jumping the Agreement without any valid and strong reason for it.
