can you share CGI Toronto email id. I have submitted passport renewal application on August 1st week. It is still showing in process at Consulate.
Any one who recently received new passport from Toronto, please share your time line
Try checking your status here. https://portal3.passportindia.gov.in/Online/index.html
Emailing them has not really been very helpful.
There was an issue with my police verification so I had to visit the office (Wednesday open house 3pm to 4pm) and the officers helped me out and then my file got processed.

I have sent an email to Consulate General of India in Toronto and got the below response:

If the applicant has a work permit / PR then it is mandatory that the printable address has to be Canadian address.
Further query, if any may be raised at the following link only : https://www.cgitoronto.gov.in/sampark/

There are FAQs under: https://www.cgitoronto.gov.in/sampark/faq.php?id=6
Hope this helps someone!!
Hi,
Did you raise new application after your previous application is returned by BLS to make Canadian address as Printable address?

The status for my passport renewal has been updated to Dispatched via Courier on BLS India and I do see Airway number on it I guess it is the tracking number.
But why does it say Airway Bill number and I am able to track it only on https://www.purolatorinternational.com/track-shipment/

It is an international package? Can anyone help me with it :)
I'm sorry I don't follow your question. If you are able to track it then won't you be able to see the location from where it's being sent?

Sorry. No, I am not yet able to see that, maybe when it is in transit? So far that status of the package at purolator is "shipping label created"
My question here is , does BLS provide airway number? or a tracking number?

Wow the timeline from “under review” to “print initiated” was really quick! Any idea whether they did a police verification for you?

Nope, I don't think there was a police verfication. I wanted to include my spouse name in my passport and her passport already had my name. So, most likely they skipped PV.

Hi,
My status says "Passport has been printed".
I hope to receive my new passport soon. However, I would like to know if they send the old passport as well (mine is postal application, so sent original old passport along with application) and it is important that I have the old one since the passport contains my US visa (valid for next 7 years or so.
Thanks in advance!
Did they do police verification in your case?
