Hurray! I received my OCI acknowledgement today and application status on OCI site is showing Under Process. Here's my timeline:

OCI Application Date- February 8
OCI Acknowledgement Date- February 23

However, I have a few queries mentioned below.

1) On BLS tracking website, the status is still stuck on Original Documents dispatched via courier. I heard that you need to get BLS status as 'Processing at Consulate General' before getting acknowledgement. So is there a cause for concern with regards to my BLS status not being updated with the required status?

2) Does acknowledgement mean my application is mostly approved?

Please note that I have searched using the search button on this forum but couldn't find any relevant info. So I thought it's better to get answers from the solid expertise of people here.

Wow your applications seems to be going lightspeed. I applied on Feb 11, but I have not yet got my originals back even.

Guys. After completing part A and part B of OCI application, photo comes in printed on the submitted application form. Do we have to carry a physical photo when we go to bls office? Also do we need a copy of surrender certificate attested as well or only the original is sufficient?
Plz address this query
Thanks

Yes and BLS is asking for 2 hard copies of the photos
carry all your originals including passports(Canadian and Indian), Certificates (Citizenship and Surrender), Address Proof (Driving License, etc) and also take the copies as well. Copies should be self attested.
