    A related consequence of the same feature is that “dig in NS” gets you the NS records for the root domain “.”. If you wanted the NS records for the India TLD then you have to write “dig in. NS

        I usually dig the other way around (specifying the record type first) to get around (some) of these issues, but even then no luck:

        % dig NS ch
        ...
        ;; OPT PSEUDOSECTION:
        ; EDNS: version: 0, flags:; udp: 512
        ;; QUESTION SECTION:
        ;.				CH	NS
        ...
        

        Also TIL that I can specify the record type last, which makes looking up different records much easier than navigating past the domain name!
