Answer(s)

Raju Kanumuri: Before a lost OCI card can be replaced,
Applicants should file a police report. To apply for a replacement OCI Card, applicants will have to provide a copy of the complaint filed with the police.
In some cases, a notarized self-written affidavit that explains the circumstances of how the card was lost may be accepted. Generally, most consular officials will want a police report copy and whether an official accepts an affidavit or not depends on the circumstances.
A personal interview with the applicant may need to be conducted at the Indian Consulate or FRRO if the applicant in India.
