I'm a US citizen with an OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) card; the closest thing to dual citizenship that the countries have.
I apparently have all the rights of an Indian citizen except:
- The ability to buy agricultural land
- The ability to vote / run for a political (or judiciary) office
- The ability to hold an Indian passport
In case of situations besides the above where the eligibility criteria mentions that the applicant must be an Indian national, am I eligible? For example, there are a lot of educational programs or scholarships open only to Indian nationals. Do I count?
