Congrats, Buddy. Cheers for the update.
I hope you used Canada Post Xpress. Please keep us posted after you get the Passport back. This way, we can get an idea about the time required for the stamping done.
I did use Canada Post. Is there a reason why you would recommend using it?

No just print the approval letter and take it to the vac office and submit your passport and along with that letter and submitted the fee for delivery. And it took only 1 week for me to get stamped
I have read some of the comments saying that it will go to India New Delhi office and not CIC Ottawa where my application has processed. And also is vac allowing in person visits?

Yes, sure, but I need inputs here, can I walk into VFS and give my request letter and passport or should I request a 2 way courier service?

I am not sure about India Vac office either its open or not but i was in Pakistan and my passport went to Islamabad office not Ottawa one but on TRV sticker Ottawa office’s name was mentioned.

also one more thing while i was returning i was stopped by the immigration officers at the airport in Pakistan because they didn’t know if the passport can get stamped in the country of origin or not. They got suspicious because my date of entry to Pakistan was earlier than the date mentioned on my TRV sticker. I showed them the approval letter and before leaving canada i had contacted Ottawa office for confirmation of this so it helped me in my case.

I applied TRV online inside Canada on Dec 24, 2020
Submission confirmation - Feb 1, 2021
Reviewing eligibility is in progress for quite some time. No updates after that.

Submitted a webform on Feb 5, 2021 and got a reply on Feb 26, 2021 that your application is still in process.

Is there any chances that it is getting delayed since PR application is processing in parallel? PR application is due on April 23, 2021.
No your PR will not impact TRV. It takes minimum 2-3 months to get PPR .
