No, but this is for obvious reasons that have nothing to do with what is claimed in that report. It's because of the travel ban and closed VACs in India.Are they getting PPRs from NDVO?
They're not going to prioritize issuing PPRs when people can't travel, and even more so when the passports can't be delivered. This started at almost exaclthy the same time as the travel ban. Other countries proceeding as before.
I don't know the report and didn't see (but mistakes happen all the time in media, unfortunately). I am guessing that this was for a non-family sponsorship type. But only a guess. Otherwise clearly not true for family sponsorship (save the situation in India, which is well known).
