The Home Ministry on Friday lifted curbs on the entry of Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) cardholders in the country but subject to conditions. The govt said OCI cardholders with pressing family emergencies will be allowed entry into the country. Couples, where one spouse is an OCI cardholder and the other, is an Indian national and they have permanent residence in India, will also be granted entry, along with university students who have valid cards and Indian citizens as parents. Minor children born to Indian nationals abroad and holding OCI cards are also allowed. On 18th March, India had suspended the visa-free entry facility granted to OCI cardholders amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
