According to a representative of the High Commission in India, former military persons and their families require special clearance from the Department of External Affairs in order to leave India (13 July 1992). This applies in all cases and not just to specific countries.
The IRBDC is unable to corroborate this information at the present time.
Country Reports 1991 states that "Foreign travel and emigration are without political restrictions" (1992, 1400). The High Commission of India corroborates this statement (13 July 1992).
