if it’s showing that pending at SP office

then send someone to the local police station to talk with this concern

but usually, police officers go to your back home address they will collect some information

and will take pictures of your home and they may ask your Indian proofs also

and if you do not have your spouse’s name on your passport and they are trying to make any issue regarding that then you know the best how to request to police officers there

because it happened with many of the applicants

and they got rejected their applications

and many got PCC without spouse names on passports so it’s all up to officers who do verification

when its all done from their side they will send it back to the Indian embassy to stamp it

then you will get it at your home address or you have to go to the BLS office contact them if you do not get it or ask them for another tracking number because sometimes they send it back by the third party

keep tracking

PCC is valid for 6 months only

we wish you all the best
