Hello,

I've heard it's been announced that the PIO and OCI cards will be merged. I'm wondering what effect this will have on PIO card holders, such as myself. Will we have to continue to register? Will we be issued new "cards." Will this apply to all PIO card holders or only those of Indian origin (and not spouses). I've also read that NRI's will now be allowed to vote. Exciting! I know the announcement is new. I'm just wondering if anyone knows any details...

Looks like there's already another thread. I guess we're all in the same boat...waiting for details. For those of you who come to this thread and not the other, the title of the better thread is below...

Blame the speech writers and special assistants for such a garbled text. Blame reporters in indian media for sloppy research and fact-checking, and blame the editors of those newspapers for lacking clarity in the text.
