Hello Jagan and Gidoc, let me know when your documents are dispatched. My docs were printed on 24th but have not been dispatched yet. looking at the previous posts, I thought the documents were generally disptached the very next day after printing.

Both online registration website and tracking website are down since Friday. There is no information anywhere on when things will be up and running again. I have tried calling HCI atleast 25 times, but the phone is never answered. Does anyone know if there is a specific time when they answer phones?
