Option 1: Apply for PCC at Indian embassy in US. I have heard that it takes around 6-8 weeks these days. There is a risk that I will miss the deadline for document submission.
Option 2: Travel to India and apply for PCC at a PSK. I am not sure how much time it will take.
1. As an Indian currently living in USA, is option 2 feasible?
2. Which option seems better in my condition?
3. Do I have to submit original passport for any duration in option 1/option 2?
