DAO issues naturalised, by descent citizenships
Birgunj, July 6
District Administration Office, Parsa has been issuing by descent and naturalised citizenship certificates after the promulgation of the new constitution.
Chief District Officer of Parsa Keshab Raj Ghimire said the DAO was distributing citizenship certificates to children who were born from persons with by descent and naturalised citizenship.
He added that the district has yet to issue citizenship certificates in the name of mother and by birth.
Ghimire clarified that the citizenship certificates could not be issued in the name of the mother and by birth as the law for the provision has yet to be made though it was mentioned in the constitution.
CDO Ghimire said citizenship certificate in the name of mother and by birth could not be issued until the citizenship act came into effect.
Not a single person has filed application in Parsa District Court to receive citizenship certificate in the name of mother. But it has been reported that hundred of applications were filed in the administration office in the name of mother before the promulgation of the new constitution.
