OCI in lieu PIO for foreign spouse not of Indian origin
I applied for OCI in lieu of PIO for my wife US citizen but not from India. I submitted her application in August of 2015 and finally I received the card in May 2016. It took almost 9 months to process this kind of application. I have contacted CKGS and Indian Consulate General in San Francisco and they have the standard reply " it is getting processed from New Delhi and they don't know how long will it take".
What I did is I lodged a complained with and I think that made the ball rolling. I think it will take 9-12 months to process this kind of application. And if you have plans of going to India you can apply for the e-visa.
Dealing with CKGS and the Indian Consulate General's you need a lot of patience and most of the time they will not reply to your emails.
