PM announces opening of Indian Cultural Centre in Sydney

There used to be another law, which required Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) and Overseas Citizen of India​ (OCI) card holders to present themselves at police stations while visiting India. We have done away with that law. There is another problem which faced by people - to go in for a PIO card or an OCI card. Both used to get separate treatments but now they will be treated as one. The people who have a PIO card, they will all get a lifetime visa to India. Now it doesn't matter if people in the Embassy do not return your calls, PM Modi laments.
