Are you Indian? If not and you are not residing in India then you do not need an Indian PCC.

I am not an Indian citizen however i reside in India. And from the link you shared, it says i need PCC. But the offical here at District Police for my residence says they don't issue PCC.

Also when i am asking US Embassy about Indian PCC requirement with the info where i stated that i have been living in India for more than 8 years, they simply replied me back with PCC requirement from Nepal and they didn't said anything about Indian PCC. Why ?? (Any Idea guys)

Hi Bunny & Ninja,
If i were you, I wouldnt take that risk of not getting a PCC from the country (India) you are residing in for 8 years. I would rather go to Nepal and get an Indian PCC from the Indian consulate. Just because India & Nepal share a free common border doesnt make them one country and therefore makes you eligible for two different PCC's. So a PCC from India must be required. The US immigration website clearly says you have to get a PCC from all the countries you have resided in for more than 6 months. Unfortunately, whether you require a PCC from India or not will only be known at the time of interview. I hope you figure out the solution for the technical situation you are in. All the best. God bless.

Hi Nirshd47

India PCC has been misery. I don't know what will happen. I am not giving up on PCC India. I am researching and folks in this forum from India has been really awesome and kind to me.

Yesterday all day long i spent on going from one office to another to be turned down. Well this wont stop me. I will get PCC India. I have sent an email to Embassy of India, Kathmandu requesting further process to obtain PCC India from Nepal.

One thing is clear that i have to get PCC from India (even if i dont need it). Once i am done with it i will write my complete story about PCC India so that any new folks who needs it won't have to deal as much as me.

Thank you for your kind reply.

On another of your posts, I called attention to the reqirement to get the certificate from the FRRO that covers the area of your residence. IF you have been living in India for 8 years, you should certainly have registered with the FRRO.
