I have a question. Do we have to return our Indian passports before we apply for a Canadian one or we can do it after applying also? please advice.
You can do it after.

If you are planning on applying for OCI, you can submit your surrender + OCI application together. Surrender application is to surrender your Indian passport and your citizenship. You will cease to be an Indian citizen once this happens. OCI is Overseas Citizenship of India (it is a multi-purpose life long visa to India).

The current process was posted by one of the members here!

Good luck!

Hey Everyone, I finished my interview on Saturday. I see all the status is now completed except for Citizenship Ceremony. Also, my overall application is also "in progress". Anyone had a similar experience? I'm looking at the online application status page.

It’s normal. Give it 1-5 months for the oath invitation to come. The backlog at the moment is quite severe.

These days the backlog is huge but you never know they might invite you for the Oath soon. Just keep monitoring the tracker. Usually, they update it before they send e-mails.
how did your interview go? What kind of questions did they ask? how long was it?
Thanks

Anyone who passed the test in early March 2021, any updates? I have nothing yet, no interview, no oath, no decision made yet....

It looks like the Scarborough office (or any office for that matter) is slow in post-test completion phase.

If you passed the test in March, expect at least 1-2 months more to be either invited for an interview or get your application approved.

God knows how long would it take for them to clear out the backlog after the test invites they sent in last few months.
