OCI: How long for dispatch after OCI granted?

As per OCI tracking, my OCI was granted last Thursday, but still not dispatched from MOIA (OCI) – New Delhi.

Does anyone know how long does it normally take for OCI/Documents to be dispatched after approval?

10 days is probably classed as Tourist visit and you do not need to register with FRRO. FRRO registration is probably only for people who intend to stay in India for more than 6 months who will need to register with FRRO according to following quote from FRRO website. http://indianfrro.gov.in/frro/ ...

As a matter of interest, does anyone know the validity of the biometric ID obtained through ILR once one has been naturalized. I am curious if it is still a valid form of ID. Are we expected to destroy the biometric ID or return it to UKBA/HO? Thanks in advance Can you also use it as ID proof when ...

One of them must be a professional referee, either of them.
My understanding is professional referee can be of any nationality but personal referee has to be BC (with professional qualification or older than 25 years)

Does anyone know why some applications take only 3 weeks whereas some take 3 months? Some may be straight forward and some may need further checks.

No wonder this is UKBA, and its Deja Vu after their IT failure last year in which I was one of the victim during my ILR application.
