9 months is a lot of time. You will get your PR cards delivered in Canada and you can either have it couriered to India OR choose to apply for PRTD.
It takes a week to get PRTD from India(you can apply in any of the VFS offices).
I have faced the same issue. Landed on Apr 5 and multiple attempts till Apr 24 were failing.
Try do an exact copy(including punctuation) of birth place from passport and keep trying 3-4 times in a week. You will be able to link eventually :-)
Could you please elaborate on what we will see in document section in case of new photo request? Do you mean this section in CIC account "Review of additional documents: We do not need additional documents."?
Same here, landed on Apr 5, Toronto. Status was updated for dependents. Changed to submitted, after I checked their applications. However, there was no "updated" status on my application(primary applicant)..
Those who have linked their PR Card application with CIC account, did your online status for the section "Review of additional documents" changed to "additional documents requested" when you received a new photo request..
Any idea, if its 6 months till landing date or 6 months till PR cards processing.. say, some one lands after 4-5 months since the photos are taken and PR card takes 2 more months, is there a chance of photo out of date..
