*ADR2: this was the disguised PFL IMO. Notice how they asked for POF in the first ADR and then a second time with a very specific time period. From GCMS notes, I found out my application was flagged by Case Analyst because my work experience was at a small family business, paid in cash, 2 years part time and then 2 years full time. The bank statements from 2018-2019 were asked to verify this. Plus in the first ADR, they asked for ITR, which I again did not have.
To respond to this ADR, I took screenshots of various emails, whatsapp conversation, communications and emails between me and some major online websites where the business was registered and operated on, invoices of Amazon/Flipkart orders I made for the business using my account, etc. from 2015-2019.
In the LOE, i explained that I understood IRCC officials are having a hard time verifying my work experience, and a lengthy but concise including the screenshots, emails was sent back as the response. I also informed them that all the evidence to support my application that I am submitting, I can present on my phone/computer to any official in its physical form, further cementing the authenticity of everything.
Also attached backdated, notarised salary slips but I don't think they did anything for the Visa Officer.
Visa Officer passed my eligibility based on the Balance of Probabilities a day later from ADR2's submission.
No agent or consultancy used, a lot of research and scouring the forums and youtube videos. Leaving this information out here because I too searched old/previous posts for answers, so if someday some chap needs information, he can probably find this helpful or at least inspirational.
