Those parental details are not relevant since she gained British citizenship by birth. She just needs to prove her own identity, i.e. her GRO birth certificate, marriage and associated name change, and current valid ID (PAN/Aadhaar/passport). There is no problem with stating that she doesn't plan to live in UK. She's not required to.
The same situation as hers applied to my mother, who is UK born and had no clue she was British until she was in her 50s too, and I am a UK citizen through her.
The biggest problem here is how are you planning to handle her Indian residency once she has a British passport in hand while residing in India ? The moment she applies for and gets her British passport, she loses Indian citizenship. One gets 3 months grace to renounce Indian nationality from date of registration as British national.
Here you go all the info you need on renouncing Indian nationality.
Yes I'm familiar with the NRI procedure firsthand myself However, it is not clear to me that the circumstances are the same when the person is resident in India vs non resident abroad.bookerw100 wrote: ↑Thu Mar 14, 2019 5:42 pmHere you go all the info you need on renouncing Indian nationality.
