NEW PIO for Minor @ SFO
Just want to share my experience. Actually after going through the positive experiences I have applied the PIO card. I was in tension until i get my PIO card since i have travel plan on 4th November.

I would suggest go for VISA process if you have travel plans less than 40 days. Embassy have SLA 4-6 weeks better avoid taking risk.

Application set to CKGS on 10/7
Received tracking id from CKGS on 10/10
CKGS submitted Application to Indian Embassy on 10/14
CKGS received it back from Embassy and delivered to me on 10/27
Received the FedEx courier on 10/28.

Overall positive experience, other than contacting CKGS helpline and visiting in person. FYI though CKGS website says unperson applications are acceptable between 9 am - 12 noon but I went there SFO office they did not accept my application. There is a UPS store right in front of the office and I have posted from there.
