Eligibility criteria: 7 Years ILR
Method of application: NCS
Date of application: 01/08/2013
Date of receipt by UKBA:
Date of acknowledgement :

Well At last the brown envelope landed.. Really happy.. Was waiting for this day for quite a long time ... Really happy , It feels like the whole world has opened up to me.. Goodluck to everyone waiting and hope u guys get yours soon.

They actually got my DOB wrong but letter says if anything is wrong just send it back after ceremony for amendment.
This Actually made me think do they check your current application or do they just reference your old ones and use that, because the DOB mistake is the same as the one i had on my ILR. Interesting!

Well Good luck everyone.

You can apply directly by post. According to UKBA/HO it can take upto 12 weeks to return your orginal documents. If you have any travel plans, I suggest you apply through NCS as you can keep all your documents with you whilst your application is being considered.
