Have you read the gazette?
Folks, while I have a forwarded email from CKGS center manager stating that they were sending the PIOs that were issued after Jan 9th to the consulate for cancellation (whoever made that dumb decision). I finally decided to read the Gazette itself (link to it is there in CKGS website) and it only states that any PIO issued until Jan 9th will be deemed OCIs. There's absolutely no mention that PIOs should not be issued after Jan 9th nor those issued after this date will be invalid.
Please help me in case if I'm interpreting the gazette incorrectly.
