Query regarding immigration forms on arrival and departure

Parents of a close friend are flying to Delhi next week. One is a british citizen with OCI and the other is a Indian citizen.

What's the current status with immigration forms in arrival if arriving with OCI / Indian passport.

Have they changed the old process of having to fill up those forms while arriving and leaving india ( at least for indian nationals ) . What about OCI holders?

No forms for Indians when arriving or leaving. Foreigners(including OCI) have to fill 1 form on arrival only

just make sure they ask for the form on the plane....recently i've noticed a few airlines skip handing out the forms unless asked for....

Yes, it seems that KLM and Air France at least have stopped handing out the forms before arrival - or else they've done it while I was still asleep and I never got to see them. Luckily each time at Mumbai airport there were plenty of forms for the taking at the couple of desks they have just before you enter the immigration hall.
