New Delhi, April 23: Sympathetic to the minority communities, especially Hindus and Sikhs, in Pakistan, the Indian government has allowed them to apply for their Long-term visa (LTV) and track their status online. In fact, the move replaces the old process of accepting the application manually.
The online application process will help the Pakistani Sikhs and Hindus, seeking refuge in India, fearing persecution. These minority communities come to India with the hope of settling here permanently.
However, the ministry has declared that the manual system of submission of LTV application will continue parallely with the online system for three months. From August 1, 2015, all applications will be received and processed only by online.
