Oxford India short introductions.
Citizenship is identified with an ideal condition of equality of status and belonging, it gets challenged in societies marked by inequalities. This short introduction describes the history of citizenship in India, before moving on to the pluralities and the contemporary landscapes of citizenship. It traces the amendments in the Citizenship Act, 1955 and argues that the legal enframing of the citizen involves a simultaneous production of its other-the non-citizen.
