Effective immediately, the Union Home Ministry of India has determined that the Person of Indian Origin (PIO) card will now be valid for life. This also means that the holder of a PIO card will be exempt from certain police reporting requirements and registration at the Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FRRO). This amendment is applicable for both existing and new PIO card holders.
