they finished 50 % cases in 4 months, 70% in 6 months and 80% in 7 months.
And btw, as per New Delhi office website - http://www.canadainternational.gc.ca/india-inde
Sponsored Spouses, Partners, and Children
Processing times for these applications are calculated from the date on which the application is accepted by Case Processing Centre - Mississauga.
So, lets say there were 10 - Jan,2012 applicants - out of them
5 will be approved by May,12
2 will be approved by July,12
1 will be approved by Aug,12
the remaining 2 can take however long..
Similarly if there were 30 - Feb,2012 applications - out of them
15 will be approved by June,12
6 will be approved by Aug,12
3 will be approved by Sept,12
Now obviously this is the case when Mississauga is not causing additional delays, this Jan there time got increased by at least a month or so- which can explain water fall effect delays for all Jan,Feb, so on ... applicants.
this extra time should be added to the above calculations and going back to the e.g of Feb applicants would now be like:
30 - Feb,2012 applications - out of them
15 will be approved by July,12
6 will be approved by Sept,12
3 will be approved by Oct,12
10 - Jan,2012 applicants - out of them
5 will be approved by June,12
2 will be approved by Aug,12
1 will be approved by Sept,12
Look at the trackers, majority of Jan applicants were are being approved this June-July (5 out 10)
I suspect the same for Feb, majority will be July-august(15 out of 30)
What you all think??
