I honestly think that India should just allow dual citizenship. The distinction between OCI and PIO is quite confusing in many instances. I too think they might merge it into just one class of visa, but then again it might be a long wait before that happens. As a point of interest, does anyone know...

I agree that the government might have gone a bit far in trying to control this, as families should never be kept apart, however, I simply don't understand why so many people are hell-bent on moving to Eng land when they don't understand a word of Eng lish (and in this case even make it worse by de...

I agree with much of what has been posted already. You can avoid a lot of hassle by settling up your debts (assuming that you are financially able to). If you are able to settle your debts, perhaps it might be worth making contact with the debt management agency?

Exactly.

Council Tax Benefit is a different entity altogether, so this will not impinge on your application.

Thank you for your advice. I'd be willing to use a similar approach to you and I'll hold out some hope that things may well be all sorted in time.

I don't believe that it will. The single person discount with respect to council tax is not a "benefit" as such.

How frustrating!

I suppose the caseworker probably did follow the letter of the law quite closely, but I guess it does not make it any easier.

Did you show your evidence that you were still employed in the UK even during your absence overseas?

I don't think that this will be a problem. If your recall of the dates is accurate, then the UKBA can check the date you left the UK on their own system. Assuming a match, I don't think that you'll have too many problems.
