EC processed from Chennai for MArch 13

Just came to know that one person who had applied on the same day as mine on 13th March from Bangalore VFS has got the EC.

Wondering why I have not got it yet :(
He had prior UK travel experience, so that might be the reason for relatively faster processing ? (!!)
