Indian-Americans protest against new visa rules
The protestors also submitted a petition to the US authorities in this regard.
A recent notice posted on the website of many Indian embassies and consulates contains controversial new rules for Persons of Indian Origin who have acquired citizenship in other countries.
Among other rules, the notice says that the PIOs must surrender their old Indian passports to the nearest Indian consulate within 90 days of acquiring citizenship in another country. Also mandatory is a surrender (of Indian citizenship) certificate, which comes with a price tag of $175.
There are also steep penalties for a variety other things.
