Narendra Modi announced a new deadline for the conversion of PIO cards to OCI. Modi had indicated in the past to convert all the PIO (Person of Indian Origin) cards to OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) cards without any charge i.e free of cost.
Though the conversion announcement was made, a clear deadline from when the charge would be applied for the conversion was not mentioned. Today at Pravasi Bharatiya Divas held in Bengaluru, PM have given a clarity on the deadline for PIO-OCI card conversion to be 30th June. Now NRI’s can apply for the conversion of cards till 30th June for free of cost.
OCI has got more benefits compared to PIO as OCI has a lifetime tenure and PIO is valid for 15 years. Modi appreciated the Pravasi for their contribution in their respective firms and stated that they have become the role models for other immigrants from other countries.Don't MissAdvantage ENE As Dull Week AheadFortune favours the brave, and the makers of Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi are...Don't MissSuriya Couldn't Pay Rs 5 But Donated Rs. 25 LakhsIt's always good to look back and keep ourselves deep-routed like Suriya....Don't MissNani's Sportive Answer, Votes for Tarak's HostingSanjana Anne, the first contestant of Bigg Boss-2 who got eliminated in...Don't MissPic Talk: Actress' Hot Looks to KillNot just the hot dress and the sexy makeup, but the posture...Don't MissOfficial Clarification on Rana's Kidney RumoursRana has just completed a schedule for his upcoming trilingual 'Haathi Mere...
