would really appreciate your help on applying for OCI through post. I went through the cgi website but i could not find an address to send application to. so wondering if you guys can help me on that.
my background, was indian but naturalized as british through HSMP/ILR. Already surrendered the indian passport and gotten the surrender cerfiticate.
If I were making an postal applciation

2. Is just one photograph enough?

4. what is the address the postal OCI application needs sending and how soon after submission can I receive my original passport back (if original is needed submitting with postal application)
5. what is the best cost effective method to take a DD/PO.
