Is there ANYTHING in the above that is unclear????

Also, user 'madhu_zoom' - strongly suggest you read the forum rules as you were required to do when you registered as a user. Personal contact information is NOT permitted to be posted.

He was also told to escalate the matter for the difference in the address leading to this delay. He also provided us with a contact ID.
Contacted UKVI on phone on 18.04.2017: To check if the documents have been tracked and in process. To our shock there was no escalation and no documents tracked.
