OCI KIDS GET SAME RIGHTS AS INDIAN CITIZEN KID

Last 2 decades India has seen a large amount of Indians crossing Indian Borders towards the west for education, work and business. Large Amount of Indians who went to USA face a huge Issue with their Kids born in USA. I understand India has given the option of registering a KID born in USA at the Indian embassy and get Indian Passport. The USA Government that Considers any person born in USA soil to be a Citizen doesn't give any Visa to these kids who they consider as citizens and hence the parents are stuck with only 2 options. Either wind up your work in USA and come home for good or Take USA Citizenship for your kid and apply OCI. The set of Indian parents who have returned back home after their visa contract is now a resident Indian with a KID on OCI status. For all reasons these Kids who study all their schooling in India doesn't qualify to appear for Indian Goverment Colleges, Cant represent their Country for Sports and these parents who are resident Indians are required to pay NRI fees for their Kids. These OCI kids have done nothing wrong except being born in a foreign soil and they are deprived of their rights as a Indian Citizen. I kindly request the Indian government to look into this issue as it is affecting millions of kids and amend the Law to allow these kids to hold both Indian and Foreign passports until the age of 18 when they can choose their nationality. By this way the Kid and the stressed Indian parents are not subjected to pain they don't deserve. After all we did not cross the border for our own prosperity but for the entire nation and history will speak for the truth. Thanks
