The circular regarding OCIs is highly confusing: Let us take a scenario: Suppose say an OCI card holder has repatriated with family to India. They have property, business, employ Indians, pay taxes in India, kids go to school in India, etc. An OCI card holder might have gone abroad alone for bringing projects to India (mostly software sector) and is stranded abroad. He could have gone to a country where he has citizenship or to a country where visa is not needed. Ex. A Canadian can travel to 178 countries without visa and could have gone to one. How will he return back to India where he has family or business? Even if he is in the country of citizenship, he will not have any medical coverage or insurance or medicines since he is no longer a Resident of that country and is considered Resident of India. Thus point #3 in OCI card relaxations is far more confusing. How to prove that he is a resident of India? Many OCI card holders have explained this situation and even given IT returns to Indian embassies abroad but in vain. At least Govt should consider operating flights to select countries at 20% usual capacity to allow both Indians and OCIs. No one is going to travel unnecessarily at this time. There will be demand for first 2-3 weeks. After that, Aviation industry is going to collapse by default: Not due to fear of virus but due to ad hoc decisions taken by govt and the fear of living in lock down for months together! Many are pushed to depression due to mental agony they are undergoing. Just imagine being alone in an unknown country locked in a small room for months together! Also, some of the statements like 'railways, buses should start first then flights' is unacceptable. Flight is safest, fastest mode of transport. A train from Delhi to Chennai takes 32 hours whereas it takes just 2 hours by flight. So, possibility of getting infected in 16 times more in train than flight. But many opposing flight have a mentality that those travelling by flight are rich and should suffer! I am not opposing trains but flight, though expensive is much safer at this time. more
