PIO Cards
Government of India has phased out PIO cards. Since ICAO will accept only machine readable travel documents from October 2018, existing PIO cards, which are handwritten, will therefore become invalid. It will be necessary upon PIO Cardholders to obtain machine readable OCI Cards in lieu of existing hand written PIO Cards before October, 2018 to avoid any inconvenience.
