Important information for OCI Card holders

Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs (MOIA), in a Gazette Notification dated 23rd March 2012, has specified that OCI Registration booklets of OCI holders will be treated as their identification for any services rendered to them in India. It allows OCIs to give an affidavit, attested by a Notary Public, stating that a particular specific address in India may be treated as their place of residence in India. The relevant extract from the Notification is given below:

"State Governments should ensure that the OCI registration booklets of OCIs are treated as their identification for any services rendered to them. In case proof of residence is required, Overseas Citizens of India may give an affidavit attested by the notary public stating that a particular/specific address may be treated as their place of residence in India, and may also in their affidavit give their overseas residential address as well as e-mail address, if any.”

Launching of MEA Smart Phone App

Foreign Secretary has launched the "MEA India” – a Smart Phone App. The App is now available for downloading on Android phones and hand-held devices on ‘Google play’ and on all Apple devices at the App Store.

With this launch, Ministry of External Affairs is the first Ministry of the Government of India to have a mobile App that integrates its entire digital presence on a single platform. The MEA India App integrates relevant web pages of our Missions abroad as well as selected web pages of the websites relating to the Passport Seva Kendra, videos of the PD Division, Hajj and Kailash Mansarovar Yatra pilgrimages.

Indian Diplomatic/Consular Missions all over the world are integrating their web page with the MEA website so that press releases that are put up by any of our Missions globally will appear immediately on a single module on the MEA App and therefore can be read by anyone anywhere in the world.
