NYC Indian Passport holders who recently renewed:
My passport status says "Passport application has been granted" and has had this status for a week now. Calls and emails via PRAMIT tell me it's being processed.
Can anyone who has gone through the process recently tell me if this status is final or there are more steps after this? How long after this status did you receive your passport back?
