Seems Chennai is processing with an average from 55 working days as per the stats.

Worth checking some figures from Delhi or Mumbai BHC.

Hi Kalugampitiya,

This is really interesting. As per your records it seems the British High Commission had started processing your documents.
Did you get the document missing information from VFS or British High Commission from Chennai?
