Difference between citizenship and residentship?

Dear student,

In Citizenship ,a person has rights and privileges of a country's rule, whereas under residentship, a person is given legal permission to live in a country subject to certain restrictions,they don't enjoy all the rights and privileges of country like citizens  and they also need to renew their residency permit.

Under citizenship, person has right to vote whereas under residentship ,person  hold the nationality of his home county and subject to the law of his home country.

For example - Mr. A holding India Voter ID card, doing job in America is having Indian Citizenship and American Residentship.
