Applied PIO cards after January 09, 2015
I would like to share experience for applying new PIO cards after January 09, 2015.
I sent PIO application to New York embassy on - 01/12/2015
CKGS site updated application received status - 01/15/2015
I saw new rule (PIO card withdraw) on CKGS site on - 01/16/2015
CKGS site updated application processed status - 01/21/2015
I thought they my return my application forms but surprise thing is my son got PIO card life time on -01/22/2015
 PIO card issue date is - 01/19/2015

I have question about newly issued PIO card date is showing - 01/19/2015. But As per the official Gazette Notification, existing PIO holders do not have to do anything. All PIO cards issued till 09 January 2015 are deemed to be OCI cards.

shall I use this PIO card to travel to INDIA or do I want to apply OCI card?
