Things I did to prepare for the application
After going through the application instructions on CKGS website and a Youtube about “how to fill” the government website form, wrote down everything I would need, collected and scanned documents. All copies sent were color copies. No staple pins were used, placed the documents in the package in the order it was listed on the Document checklist. Signed copies of my Driver’s License, Passport copy, and Utility Bill for address changed. Used paint to convert the signature in 1:3 [200 pixels x 67 pixels] and Photograph [900 pixels x 900 pixels].I saved a copy of all the documents that were printed. Used UPS and paid for it to CKGS. Send in naturalization certificate copy, renunciation letter, old cancelled Indian passport copy, it was not on the document list. Photographs were taken at WalMart.
Called CKGS each time I got stuck, used chrome and completed the government application in one sitting, but did the CKGS part one day and the next day did government form.
Start to Finish Time Line: 17 days
 02/22/2019 - Friday, 3:26 PM, UPS Packet Picked up

I have been unable to successfully upload documents during the OCI card application using macOS or linux. I used both firefox and chrome in both cases. After clicking upload I get a blank page.

I resolved this issue by using chrome on windows 10. Advise you only use windows 10 for this one. Submitted March 2019.

Hi All,

I sent my OCI application to CKGS with all the documents in the check list. I received a notification this morning stating my OCI Application in on Hold due to incomplete documents. "OCI Application Form" is missing - You have not submitted your OCI Government form."

I included the completed and signed "OCI Registration Form" in the package. I called the customer support and they mentioned that I need to link the "OCI Registration form" to the "CKGS Application ID" before sending the documents.
When I requested to provide further information I did not receive any answer. Can some one please help me with the information.

Do I need to re-do the OCI Registration from on the https://passport.gov.in/oci website and some how link it to my ckgs application id?

Any inputs are appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

The CKGS website says OCI + Renunciation can be done together, but the application widget does not show the renunciation part anywhere in the process. Called CKGS and also emailed them, and reply for both was to apply Renunciation and OCI separately for Chicago. The website will be updated soon.

Renunciation was quick - only three business days. Here is the time line:

10-JAN-2019, Thursday
- Application Received at CKGS
- Application Verified & Processed at CKGS
- Application In Transit to Consulate

11-JAN-2019, Friday
- Application Under Process at Consulate
- Application Reviewed by Consulate and In Transit to CKGS

14-JAN-2019, Monday
- Renunciation Certificate received by CKGS
- Renunciation Certificate picked up by Fedex

15-JAN-2019, Tuesday
- Renunciation Certificate delivered by Fedex.

Applied for OCI after receiving the Renunciation Certificate.
17-JAN-2019 - OCI Application received at CKGS
27-FEB-2019 - New OCI Card picked up from CKGS by FedEx

Total turn around time was 41 days (17-Jan to 27-Feb). Complete time line here - https://www.immihelp.com/experience/373901-Chicago-New-OCI-card-after-Renunciation.html

No issues at all with the process or with CKGS, everything worked as it should. Good service.
