IN REPLY TO MR.ANIL AGARWAL'S MESSAGE
Thank you for your reply.
But as per the Govt of India Act (ammended in 1955), Bangladeshis and Pakistanis CAN APPLY for Indian citizenship,
if he or his parents or foreparents is/are born in the territory of India. Here territory of India means the land of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, NOT NEPAL, BHUTAN, TIBET OR CHINA OR ANY OTHER COUNTRY (as per the Indian Constitution) and the rule is not applicable for Tibetans, Bhutanese and / or Nepalese. You are requested to go through the Act and I believe you will indeed understand the provisions.
As per my knowledge, people from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Bhutan, Tibet, China etc. can not enter inside India without a valid visa. This is a temporary visa which allows the incomers to stay here in India for a maximum period of 180 days. For people who want to stay here for more days, need to register their names with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It is not that easy to have Indian citizenship, except the Pakistani and Bangladeshi people (Ref.: Govt of India Act).
I don't know whether there is any such rule as you mentioned in your mail or not. If so, please give me the reference.
And regarding the citizenship matter (Indian citizenship) of Nepalese people, following will answer your mail.

One more thing I understand that I am hospitable. But it does not mean that if any of my guest or friend force me to handover him or her my own land or a part of my residence, I will be ready to do that. It is not viable. I don't think that you or any other person will be ready to handover your / his / her land to another person without any interest. And also in a position when you can not arrange food and clothings for your / his / her family members properly.
Well, nothing to tell more. You are only requested to go through the legal points properly and if you have any confusion, give me the references.
