TRACING THE ROOTS Scheme for Persons of Indian Origin

The Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs, Government of India, is running a scheme known as "Tracing the Roots" to facilitate Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) abroad in tracing their roots in India.

PIOs who intend to trace their roots in India need to apply in a prescribed Form, through the Indian Mission/Post in the country of their residence. Application Form for this purpose is available on the website:

Persons of Indian origin desirous of tracing their roots in India would be required to fill up the prescribed application form and deposit it with the concerned Indian Mission/Post located in the country of their residence along with a fee of Rs. 30,000 (Rupees Thirty Thousand only) in equivalent US $, Euro or any other foreign currency acceptable to the Indian Mission/Post. In case the attempt is not successful, the Indian Mission is authorized to refund Rs. 20,000/- to the applicant.

Presently M/s Alankit Assignment (Singapore) Pvt. Ltd. (email: shyam@alankit.com.sg) is the agency entrusted with tracing roots of PIOs in India.
