DV crtiteria: Is it birth place based or nationality

Dear Mr. Khanna,
Most of the immigration quotas are birthplace based rather than
citizenship (or nationality) based.
Is it also true for DV lottery.
i.e. can an Indian citizen born outside India (say in Africa)
can apply for DV lottery eventhough Indians born in India are
not allowed to do so.

Yes, you can file for DV by asking to be charged to your/spouces country of birth.
Basically you will claim the nativity of the country you were physically born.
