I think you can send an email to CPC-CTD-Ottawa@cic.gc.ca and ask by when you can expect your passport back. Besides, it will be a good idea to talk to Delhi-Visa Office.

I've sent my passport on 21st Dec, reached there on 24th Dec. By the looks if it, it's taking about 2-3 weeks to get the passport back.
Anyone sent it in the past couple months?
Thanks!
