Covert Persons Of Indian Origin Cards To Overseas Indian Citizens Cards: PM Narendra Modi

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing at 14th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in Bengaluru welcomed the delegates, saying, "The Indian diaspora represents the best of Indian culture, ethos and values".

He also said for those workers who seek economic opportunities abroad, "Our effort is to provide maximum facilitation and ensure least inconvenience".

He said, “I would again encourage all PIO (Persons of Indian Origin) Card holders to convert their Cards to OCI (Overseas Indian Citizens) Cards. We have extended the deadline for PIO card conversions to OCI from 31 December 2016, until June 30, 2017 without any penalty. For me FDI has two definitions. One is 'Foreign Direct Investment' and the other is 'First Develop India.”
