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
Heard few people got the new OCI with in 20-30days.Hope I too get it within this timeframe, I have to visit India in December.

Anyone in the similar stages?

OCI on Hold due to Parents/Spouse name not matching
I made a mistake in Gov form (for OCI for self) and didn't put middle name of my parents and Wife which are present in my cancelled Indian passport.

Not they are asking for "1. Official Court Order for the name change OR 2. Notarized Affidavit saying that the Name of the person in the OCI Government Form and the Indian passport belong to the same person" Notarized affidavit must come from both parents explaining the name difference in the government application form. "

My Father is in India and bedridden, He can't do this physically and even if he does, it will take days to send that to USA and send to CKGS.
 Can I do the affidavit in USA without he being present?

Why can't I just re submit the Gov form by fixing it. I have send them email 3 days ago and no response.
Now I am stuck. Does this mean my $340 is gone and may have to get my application(USA passport) back?
Resubmit all new application?
With the company change, I don't think they care anymore.
Please anyone help?
