If I give up your Indian citizenship, what happens?

Giving up your Indian citizenship means you’ll no longer be entitled to support from the Indian Embassy if you're abroad. The laws, rights and responsibilities of your new state will apply. That means that you might be obliged to do military service, vote, serve on a jury, and so on - the same as any other citizen.

When you return to India, the same rules will apply for you as for any other citizen of your adopted country. That means that you could need a visa for your visit.
