New Delhi: All Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) cardholders will henceforth be required to take special permission from the central government if they want to be involved in any missionary or 'Tabligh' or journalistic activities in the country.

However, the Union Home Ministry has given a major concession to OCI cardholders by allowing them parity with Indian nationals in the matter of tariffs in airfares in domestic sectors, entry fees for visiting national parks, national monuments and museums in India.

The ministry, in a notification, said the OCI cardholders will be entitled to get multiple entry lifelong visa for visiting India for any purpose but "required to obtain a special permission or a special permit from the Foreigners Regional Registration Officer or the Indian Mission to undertake research and to undertake any missionary or Tabligh or mountaineering or journalistic activities".
