PIO cardholders to get lifetime Indian visa, PM Modi says

NEW YORK: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday told a rapturous crowd of NRIs that Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) cardholders will get lifetime Indian visa and that American tourists will be given visa on arrival. 

Modi, who arrived at the packed Madison Square Garden to a rousing welcome, announced the merger of PIO and Overseas Citizens of India schemes to facilitate hassle-free travel to the Indian diaspora. 

He announced that PIO card holders staying in India on long-term basis will no longer have to report to the local police station.
