Panaji, September 9, 2017 …   It has  been decided by Ministry of Home Affairs, Government  of India that no extension for  conversion of PIO card to OCI card on a gratis basis will be given beyond December 31, 2017 and obtaining the machine readable OCI card in lieu of erstwhile handwritten PIO card will be done on payment of full fee after  December 31, 2017.

As per ICAO, the erstwhile PIO cards will, as it is, become invalid travel documents after October, 2018; therefore it will be necessary upon erstwhile PIO (handwritten) card holders to get machine readable OCI cards before October, 2018.
