It is part of the normal mandatory process that within the stipulated timeframe of arrival in India, the student has to register his / her name with the police in the Foreigner Regional Registration Office (FRRO). The timeframe may vary from 24 hours to 14 days of arrival depending on the country of origin. A student with a PIO card also must register at the FRRO. Only OCI card holders need not register.
