  2. British Nationality because it was in 1929, when India was under British rule, every Indian then had a British nationality printed on official documents. So, it's but natural to see that JRD had a British Nationality. My great grandfather was a lawyer, his certificate also states that his nationality was British. But then, after independence they all became Indians.
