      Expect to get result in 2 weeks. I got mine in a week. But I was told it can take up to 10 business instead.

    If you do not get a response in 14 days, plz do not hesitate to contact the email id which is mentioned in the 221g slip. Happened to my wife. They asked for additional documents only after she contacted them.

      EVC model. But now a days people are getting 221g regardless. Also, as other comments say, since they hve taken your passport, things would be faster and smoother in your case.

    Happened to me. If they kept the passport, means you'll most likely get it back soon. I got back mine in a week.

    Since they took your passport, it will be fairly quick. 10 to 15 days.

    Be prepared for at least 2 business weeks. I faced this situation in London. They asked me for additional docs like my resume, publications if any, etc. I got my passport back in 2 business weeks
