New Delhi, 15 June: Indian authorities have said in their affidavit filed in the Dominica High Court that Mehul Choksi’s application to renounce Indian citizenship has been rejected. He is still an Indian citizen. Mehul is accused of defrauding Punjab National Bank to the tune of Rs 13,500 crore. This affidavit, filed by the Indian Embassy officials, states that the claim that he had renounced his citizenship of the country under the Indian Citizenship Act 1955 is flawed. His application has been rejected.

The 14-page affidavit, filed on June 8, said that Mehul Choksi’s Indian citizenship has still not expired and therefore his claim of relinquishing Indian citizenship is contrary to Indian law and is completely false. Referring to the fact that Mehul is completely bogus in this case, it was further said that this honorable court can completely refute this false claim.

It further said, Mehul submitted his Indian passport to the High Commission of India in Georgetown, Guyana on December 14, 2018 to renounce his Indian citizenship. However, the declaration of renunciation must be registered under Section 8 of the Indian Citizenship Act, 1955. Only after this one’s Indian citizenship can be terminated. As per Rule 38 mentioned in the Act, the declaration of registration has to be made to the Ministry of Home Affairs of India through the Indian Mission.

The affidavit further stated that Choksi had submitted his passport, but on January 29, 2019, several deficiencies were found in his declaration to the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs and since Mehul is wanted in India in a fraud case, he is an Indian in Guyana. The mission is being advised to consider the rejection of its declaration of abdication.
