Asking for a US citizen elderly family member who recently became US citizen but not residing in USA.

She has been resident in India for more than 182 days in last 12 months so for Income tax purpose she is Indian resident 

and she inteds to continue to stay in India forever or at least for long time ..so as per FEMA also she is Indian resident.


Because she became US citizen..she has to renounce Indian citizenship and surrender passport 

But when she renounce Indian citizenship what happens to their Aadhar and PAN card ..Are they both invalid ?

or because she was Indian origin and residing in India ..she can continue to have both Aadhar and PAN?

Aadhar and PAN does not get invalidated with renunciation of Indian citizenship. 

In fact anyone residing in India for more than 182 days per year is eligible to have an Aadhar card including non-Indian citizens. Aadhar and PAN is not just for Indian citizens.
