I am so confused with the "Match up process" for OCI in lieu of PIO for minor in the CKGS website and the Indian consulate at New York. In the CKGS website, they clearly state the steps in the match up process in which a separate email will be sent to the applicant after which you have to send your original US passport and PIO card. But the applications steps for New York asks you to send the original passport and PIO card. I have sent the originals as they have asked and my daughter's application is in process right now as of 10/06/16. In the CKGS website, they never mention anywhere about the match up process being different for New York. Does anyone know if the original US passport and PIO card for my daughter is going to be retained for 2 months with them or will they send it back soon?

Thank you
