Hello Sushil;

Thank you for your question.

Your application history is affected by a no. of elements:
- File transfer
- Eligibility determination by 2 offices
- Interview waiver
- Recent decision of Canadian govt to return some applications

It is advisable to obtain the CAIPS/GCMS notes of your Application from New Delhi, which would demonstrate in detail the complete history, answer some of your questions and also indicate the current status of your application.

If you wish Transcend to assist you in this, please email us on for fee and procedural advise.

We advise clients on these as well as find innovative immigration solutions for others.
