I just read the thread of the Malaysian guy who was refused PIO because one of his grandparents was from Sri Lanka. I was wondering myself while I was fillling in my application form what kind of proof is needed that parents and grandparents of my husband where both Indian. I think in the form they want date of birth and passport number. Nobody in this family ever had a passport and I think neither a birth certificate. Will I be in trouble or is this something which is normally ignored if you can suppose that the origin of the family was Indian?

I studied the form again. Under point 14 it says that date of birth, place of residence, nationality, passport number of father/ mother/ grandfather/grandmother may be given by spouse of Indian citizen which could mean that it is not a "must". The link is www.immigrationindia.nic.in/pioform.pdf
Seems that you have to copy it as it does not appear as proper link!

Okay now it is a proper link. I think they have the same form on the MHA webside.

My local FRO officer advised me just to ignore the may be given and fill the box just with "spouse of Indian citizen"- it is checked that husband is Indian better do not make it too complicated and get the family checked also.
There is not much I could have given as proof except of ration card and maybe voter list (but it is always difficult to get hold of them!).
