Not sure, never saw Transit to BLS from Consulate in BLS, wasn't checking BLS until status in indiavisaonline changed to processed and printed.
Thank you. Did you receive a message that Purolator picked it up or was it updated in the BLS tracking?

Hi folks, just got the entry visa. Pleasantly surprised at the processing speed, turned out better than Canadian passport and citizenship certificate timelines. Here is the timeline.

Dec 8th - BLS Brampton Walk-in Appointment (6 month entry visa along with surrender application).
Dec 9th - Processing at Consulate General (BLS)
Dec 9th - Under Processing (indianvisaonline)
Dec 14th - Granted but Not-Printed (indianvisaonline)
Dec 15th - Processed and Printed (indianvisaonline)
Dec 16th - Ready for Dispatch (BLS)
Dec 17th - Dispatched via Courier (BLS)
Dec 19th - Received passport
