Does anyone know what is the procedure to follow if our travel documents are lost/stolen while in India?
I'm asking so I can be prepared in case this happens.

Scenario A is when both passport and OCI booklet is lost/stolen.
               B is when passport is lost/stolen but OCI booklet is in our possession.
               C is when OCI booklet is lost/stolen but passport is in our possession.

Also is it better to request our embassy to issue an emergency passport or a normal passport?

Thanks in advance.

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?

I applied through CKGS. Date of acknowledgement is August 6, I contacted CKGS after 50 working days passed. They suggested that I should contact the Indian consulate at San Francisco. The consulate does not answer the phone, I am sent to an answering machine/record. I have left a message every day. I have not received any thing from them. I have contacted CKGS, they have replied, but are unable to help. I am at a loss to decide what to do in this matter. I hope the readers will be able to suggest something.

Oct 8, 2019 - CKGS Chicago confirmed receipt of applications for Renunciation and New OCI.

Oct 10, 2019 - US passport sent with OCI application shipped back to me.

Oct 11, 2019 - Cancelled old Indian passport and renunciation certificate shipped to me.

Oct 31, 2019 - New OCI card shipped to me by CKGS.

Start to finish the whole process was completed under a month at Chicago. This was a welcome surprise given that my son's OCI card issuance in 2017 took about 3 months.

Date Of Acknowledgment 30-AUG-2019
Documents Printing Status PROCESSED On 11-OCT-2019
