You can submit by post or in person

 

Can you apply for OCI from India?
Persons of Indian origin who are in India, can apply for OCI in India provided they are in India legally and the visa they hold when apply for OCI in India has at least a three month validity from the date of their OCI application.

Yes she has visa validity for almost 7 more months from today.. but on her visa says continuous stay can not exceed 180 days and today she there for 153 days......if she apply for OCI now and does not get OCI within 20 days...can she be in trouble?

and u said apply in person ...U mean at local FRRO office ?

I visited the OCI site but it does not say anything about renunciation.

I believe first we need to renounce Indian citizen and get Indian passport back with stamp that its canceled due to foreign citizenship acquired.

 

So how do we apply for renunciation?

I thought , it has been done already.  You need to check whether you can apply both.  Here in NY, ( my area), I did renunciation first and then OCI, but Washington DC allows to do together.
