After full cycle of this application i came to below conclusion.

1. Don't book ticket before valid pio/oci/visa in hand . Unless it was emergency. (My case i booked ticket and daily checked CKGS site,gmail and immihelp to find the status which is very big pain.)
2. Don't call or message to CKGS folks. Because they don't know anything about status moreover they are dumb folks.
3. Apply VISA/PIO/OCI and forgot about it/Pray for god. :)

All the best to all CKGS's customers.

Thanks and Regards,
