Indian PM is Expected to Announce Merger of OCI & PIO Cards

Modi likely to announce merger of OCI and PIO-cards
Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi is likely to announce the merger of PIO (persons of Indian origin) and OCI (overseas citizen of India) cards during his visit to USA while addressing Indian community over there.

A decision has been made that the execution of the two cards will take place quickly so as to simplify the path for Indians residing overseas and their involvement in the activities that take place here.

Indians who have migrated recently and have been granted citizenship of other nations are given OCI cards while those who have been residing overseas for few generations are given PIO cards. The OCI card holders are allowed to enter India for an indeterminate period, while PIO card holders are required to apply for visas separately. However, PIO card holders will be able to enter India as OCI card holders with the merger of these two cards.

It is likely that the merger of these two cards would ease visa free travel to India, involvement in educational and business activities of the nation and residence rights.
