DGCA Security Clearance

This is regarding the DGCA Security Clearance.
I am a Canadian Citizen with an Overseas Citizen of India Card and I received my security clearance in April 2018 allowing me to sit for my DGCA CPL Exams.
Now I have recently heard that there is a validity of 1 year on it. Is that true. Does that mean I have to get my FRTOL before the clearance otherwise they’ll redo the entire clearance.

I am really confused about this because nowhere on the DGCA’s website is it mentioned about the validity.
If anyone has any experience please do let me know.
Thank You

Are you sure you as an Canadian citizen with OCI (which is not Indian citizenship) can be issued an Indian CPL. India does not have dual citizenship.

Just asking as I saw an old post regarding this The link is below

I am a UK passport holder; having an OCI and settled in India since the last 10 years.
And I want to pursue private pilot license here in India.

I did my class-2 medical; but my doctor (DGCA approved) says that he cannot file because I am British.

Whom do I contact for my medical security clearance?
I understand that my flying school will file my security clearance for the computer number.
But I am stuck on my medical.

Please help.
