NRI association discusses demonetisation issue with Sushma


NEW YORK: Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) and persons of Indian origin (PIO) are still struggling with demonetisation with at least Rs 75,000 crores lying with them in demonetized notes. The issue was brought up as a delegation from Gopio(Global Organization of People of Indian Origin) met external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj in New York recently.
