Panaji: In a relief to several thousand OCI card holders, the Ministry of Home Affairs have relaxed the rules for granting permissions for them to come to India, if they belong to a certain category.

The MHA in its order issued on May 22 has said “it is now been decided to permit the following categories of Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) Cardholders,who are stranded abroad, to come to India.

The categories includes “Minor children born to Indian nations and holding OCI cards.”

“OCI cardholders who wish to come to India on account of family emergencies like death in family.”

“Couples where one spouse is an OCI cardholder and the other is an Indiann national and they have a permanent residence in India.”

“University students who are OCI cardholders (not legally minors)  but whose parents are Indian citizens living in India.”

  1. Why certain category??? Why are this rules made why not evry one who holds oci can go to india to our home town, how does it feels when u wait anxiously to go and then this category comes, it’s been months her we are in the house with no work.. waiting to go to our home town and then when it come its comes with a shock as well. Please I request that all the oci card holders should be allowed to travel to india
