I am going out of the Uk, last week of June. I rang home office today. Was told application registered on 29/03/11 but not been allocated to case worker, everything is going on time and will be dealt with within 6 months(ha ha, familiar!)
When asked about passports, a request has been put up for them to be returned in 10 working days. Told this won't usually delay the process unless case worker wants to see the passports for some reason.

Lionking007 and t4tahir after both of your's suggestions I just called UK BA . They said that decision was made on 24th May, but no letter has been sent out yet. But again I am not excited until i get letter in my hand. Previously couple of people had the same response ( decision made ) but after couple of weeks when they called again it was awaiting allocation again . lol :lol:
