From a BBC announcement in 2007, I understand that PIO cardholders along with the citizens of SAARC countries pay only Indian fees when entering Taj Mahal and such ASI sites.

Reference : http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7098370.stm.

My question is; Has anyone really notice that a pio card holder who cannot be mistaken for an Indian citizen could pay the lower fee and enter those site.

Does anybody have a link or access to an official notification about it. I have a personal interest because cI will be visiting India in Dec 2008.

I believe this could be true, I pay the lower 'indian' fee at these places by showing my PAN registration card only, and there is no way I could be mistaken for an Indian
