Default PIO card application UK

Hi Guys,

Another PIO application query. Sorry. I want to try to apply for a PIO card. I am a white british born male. Both parents white british born. My Grandfather (white of scottish ancestry) was born in india and moved to the UK in his 20's. My great-grandfather (white of scottish ancestry) was born, lived, worked and married in India. I have my Grandfathers birth certificate (Bombay), his application for a british passport (and stating my great grandfathers birthplace as Bangalore) and my great grandfathers marriage certificate in india. All my ancestry is white - but does anyone know if I have a chance? THANKS!!!
