I'm in a similar situation. When I track the status on the website it shows “PCC application is under review at Indian Embassy/Consulate”. Haven't received any email about the initiation of the police verification, yet. Application submission date 10th September (walk-in @ BLS Toronto). Haven't received any update since on the portal (BLS or embassy.passportindia). Playing the waiting game for now. Let me know if you notice any change or hear back from the folks at the consulate.
