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 ?
