This chapter investigates how migration from the Indian subcontinent has led to the formation of an Indian diaspora. It explains that the Indian diaspora is the third largest diaspora in the world according to some estimates and that people of Indian origin are found in five continents and in many countries such as Mauritius, Fiji, Surinam, Guyana and Nepal. This chapter suggests that despite the initial reluctance the Indian government was forced to grant dual citizenship to certain categories of non-resident Indians (NRIs) for economic reasons.
