It's more than four months and I am still waiting for my son's OCI card to arrive.
I applied for my son's OCI on February 22, 2015 and it was received at CKGS-San Francisco office on March 3rd. Although they have mentioned (in their checklist) that in case of University Students, a letter from University housing will be accepted as an address proof but they refused to do so and told me that address proof submitted by me is not acceptable. then I sent them a screenshot of their own document and thereafter they started processing my application. It was sent to Indian Embassy/Consulate on March 13th and after about three months of wait (on June 9th), I got an email that my son's OCI card has arrived and ready for match-up with his US Passport. I send his passport next day which was delivered on June 12th (as per tracking details) but there was no update available at their website. After a wait of another 10 days, it was updated that the passport has received and it is 'UNDER PROCESS' from June 25th.
There is no update available thereafter. I sent them an email to know the status and the replied- "Your application is already in the consulate. They will let you know if it's ready for match up."
