New OCI for my minor child - CKGS San Francisco
I had absolutely no clue that CKGS was shutting down in October 2020, but was lucky enough to send my son's application packet a few days before the deadline. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure if I can call myself lucky because now I'm afraid how fast the process will move during this CKGS -> VFS transition. I have a trip to India coming up during the end of December 2020 and I'm hoping with all sincerity that my son's OCI card will come through before that.

Here's the timeline. I'll keep updating it whenever my case moves forward. I lost at least 1-2 weeks of valuable time because of 'Incomplete Documents'. An additional warning for folks to be extra careful!

Sep 23, 2020 - Application ‘Received’ by CKGS and 'Not Verified'.

Sep 28, 2020 - Your Application is 'On Hold' due to the 'Incomplete Documents'.

(The applicants Mothers name in the OCI Government Form does not match the name in the Indian passport. Please provide one of the following documents for your application to be processed further:1. Official Court Order for the name changeOR2. Notarized Affidavit saying that the Name of the person in the OCI Government Form and the Indian passport belong to the same person.)

OCI Card Dilemma
Hello All,

I have got my US Citizenship two days ago, I applied for my US Passport, and in the meanwhile researching on how to get the OCI card.

I stumbled on a few important questions pertaining to my situation.

I have 10 Acres of Agricultural land on my name Around Hyderabad and few plots in Hyderabad, Do you think I will have a problem with these being on my name after I receive the OCI card? Can I buy more land/plots on OCI card status or is it safe to transfer what I have to my siblings?

I appreciate the time and effort to answer my questions.

Thank y'all

Filed my OCI from Chicago CKGS office
I filed my OCI application in the last week Oct 12th 2020 with Chicago CKGS office, I didn't want to miss the window. After all the first few preliminary steps, I got my US passport back on Friday Oct 16th 2020.

Now the application for new OCI is in the under process status and I can track it on https://ociservices.gov.in/statusEnqury
