Just wanted to share experience of Passport Renewal with New York consulate / CKGS center.
I opted for CKGS's Fedex shipping services and sent the current passport to CKGS New York. The passport was received by CKGS on 7-Jan-2019 and I received the new passport back on 16-Jan. Overall it took 8 business days / 10 calendar days. Pretty good turn-around time by CKGS and Indian Consulate in NY.

Below is the timeline, in case anyone is curious.

Hi d4devendra,

Thanks for the timeline guidance, a quick question did you apply for the appearance change when you apply for the passport renewal?

I selected 'no' for both apprerance change and signature change. However, you still need to notarize that declaration. If you feel there is a change in either of case, you should select 'yes'.

New York seems to be the most efficient location. My friend applied on the 4th of Jan. Got back his passport within 7 working days with addition of spouse's name and change of address in India

I submitted yes in the change of appearance only.
My friends application got stuck in NY for 1 month.
