Citizenship and mobile no

I am applying for renewal of Indian passport and am looking for guidance on the following questions.

  1. Have you ever applied for or been granted citizenship by any other country?
  • Does an approved i140 count as ‘applied for citizenship’ ?
  1. Whose mobile no should I add for India address? My US no or my family member’s India no.

I tried searching for answers on this forum and couldn’t find it. Therefore this post. Thanks a ton!

I140 is counted as immigration application and not citizenship.

Thanks Anil for your response on citizenship.

Under Address, does anyone know whose mobile number should be shared for India address? My US number or a family member’s India number?

Thanks!

You can give mobile number of your friend/family who can be contacted for verification and can provide documents, if and when required.
