Converting PIO to OCI as per the new law - Mandatory from June 18th

On the CKGS Wesite and also on the COnsulate of India website for New York it is posted that all PIO holders (Existing and valid) have to upgrade to OCI. They mention that for the first 3 months it is voluntary but from June 18th 2015 it is Mandatory.

My question is - On the PIO to OCI conversion checklist they mention to provide proof of Surrender Certificate / REnunciation Certificate. But they haven't mentioned if they need original or copy.

I believe this should also be the case to convert from PIO to OCI - Can someone please advise on do we need to provide original surrender certificate of copy.

It does clearly mention to submit original PIO card.
