    Pakistani Hindus can now apply for long-term Indian visas online
    By Web Desk
    Published: April 23, 2015

    The India government has enabled Pakistani citizens from minority communities, particularly Hindus and Sikhs, to apply for a long-term visa (LTV) online, the Times of India reported.

    The online system will replace the manual system, and will also enable applicants to track the progress of their visas.

    The Indian government has been taking measures to update the application process for some time to manage the applications more efficiently.

    While the manual system of application will continue to operate alongside the online system for three months, applications will be received and processed online only from August 1.

    Welcome move by GoI, but I have a doubt. How is the Indian Govt checking whether the Pakistanis applying are indeed Hindus/Sikhs or other persecuted minorities? Pakistani muslims can pretend to be minorities to get visa, and that will create more trouble.

    Stupid move. This stupid aggressiveness on both sides of the border is retarding the economic growth of both nations. Just step up security, permit online visas and eventually visas on arrival for all Pakistanis and relax trading conditions. On occasion there is bound to be the rare jihadi slipping into India. That is for the security establishment to handle. Clear trade barriers for certain Pakistani goods and work towards the development of the regional economies as well. India's economic growth is bound to be a failure if it excludes regional participation. That is a given fact. Now is the time for the Indian political establishment to ensure that the spin offs from its economic growth starts showing regionally

    Classic apartheid policy but then better was not expected from an extreme right wing religio nationalist Hindutvawadi government. Such incentives/relaxations are offered by Zionist Israel, and now Hindutvawadi Bharat. Great move.

    But the problem is that none would go!!!

    Are you implying that India should have a similar policy towards the Pakistani Muslims as well??

    What about the Muslim sisters, do you plan on leaving them behind in India and just taking the Muslim males ? :D

    Which makes me wonder whether this move will be challenged in the Indian courts

    This is what any sane and nations with common sense would do, but sanity and common sense are two 5th ins not that common in subcontinent.

    India has strict rules on citizenship with respect to folks from Pakistan and Bangladesh. Look at the official OCI and PIO application form. if the article is true they are relaxing the rules for pakistani hindus.

    before you throw stones at the Indian government you might be advised to look at the climate of intolerance and violence in Pakistan
