🔍 Explanation

Citizenship is described in Part II of the Constitution of India, under which there are a total of seven articles from Articles 5 to 11. There is no permanent law in the constitution to ensure Indian citizenship. Rather, under Article 11, it was left to the Parliament to make suitable permanent law in this regard. And the Parliament enacted the Citizenship Act in the year 1955 for the purpose of implementing the same.
