I applied as usual through CKGS with date of acknowledgement August 6. After 59 working days, I contacted CKGS and they suggested that I contact the Consulate in San Francisco. I have called there and left messages every day. They do not answer the telephone. I am directed to an answering machine. CKGS help line answers every time with "Contact the Consulate". I am at a loss on how to proceed in this matter. Can any reader suggest how?

Try alternate communication methods like email or letter. worst scenario, try grievance portal.

Thanks. Where is the grievance portal? I am planning to write an email to the vice consul responsible for OCI. The status enquiry now suddenly gives a bar code after the reference number that did not exist earlier.

Hi, First try status of your case here "https://ociservices.gov.in/statusEnqury".

Use wisely, the below link,
Grievance portal: https://portal2.madad.gov.in/AppConsular/welcomeLink
My suggestion is explain your situation and pray for early OCI card.
Please avoid blaming authority for smooth way ahead.

I have the status enquiry address and check it every day. I will try the address. I know that Indian bureaucrats are sensitive and I will be careful. Thanks for your suggestions.

Send a message on Twitter or Facebook to Ministry of External Affairs. That should help get you a quick response.
