The Indian government is considering a proposal that would allow Non-Resident Indians (NRI) to vote in the country's elections.
"The Prime Minister will issue the dual citizenship cards to the NRIs," Minister of State for Overseas Indian Affairs, Oscar Fernandes said.
There are an estimated 25 million NRIs spread around the world.
In January the annual NRI conclave will get underway in Hyderabad and the government hopes voting rights for them will attract investments as well as make them partner in the booming indian economy growing on an average 7% year after year.
