An OCI is not a citizen of India, but the Indian Government has given the cardholder permission to reside and work within the boundaries of India. I think this may useful to you.

As per above link, only Citizen of India can become Authorized person (Sub Broker) of a Main Broker.

Now if OCI is permitted to work within boundaries of India can he be permitted to act as an Authorized Person (Sub Broker) in Share Market ?

Hello Venu Sir,

My sister is Citizen of USA and wants to become Sub Broker (Authorized Person) in NSE under any renowned Broker. These are the facts.

OCI permits one to stay in India for long time. But no right to Vote and no right to hold publice office
