I don't think your advice is correct. Once the child is granted BC following registration application, the child loses Indian citizenship.secret.simon wrote:In this specific situation, I recommend that the OP do the following in the sequence below
a) Get an Indian passport for his child
b) Get the child registered as British under Section 1(3) with Form MN.
c) Apply for a Certificate of Entitlement for Right of Abode (CoE-RoA) to be stamped in the Indian passport.
Indian law allows for dual citizenship of minors. They however lose their Indian citizenship if they have exercised their other citizenships by for example, applying for foreign passports. However, it seems to be fine with a CoE-RoA in an Indian passport as it does not indicate citizenship, only the right to stay in the UK.
That way, the child will be fully British and Indian simultaneously till the age of 18 when s/he must decide which citizenship s/he wants to continue.
The downside of the ILR approach is that once the child is 18 or over, s/he can not be registered (to which s/he has an entitlement as a minor), but must go through the whole naturalisation process. And given the amount of flux in that process, we do not know what that will look like 18 years from now.
