Default Passport Renewal @ CGI - NY

Hi

Has anyone recently renewed passport at Indian Consulate New York? I need to renew my passport and I will really appreciate if I can get answer to some of these questions

1. What application form have you used. Online Application or downloaded pdf? I have been trying to use the online application form from Washington DC web site, since NY website still has the pdf form, but with no success. This is what happens when I use the online application:
a. Open the online application and select "USA CGI NY" as Indian Mission.
b. Fill in all the details and hit "Save".
c. Choose the appointment date and hit "Confirm Appointment. Now according to the website, it should take me to next screen where I can print, Open or Save the PDF rather it reloads the application form with all the values blank. I have tried this several times but same result. Tried different browsers as well. Also if you select the reprint form and fill in the web file number etc , it says could not find it.

2. Has anyone else had the same issue. PLEASE let me know if you know what the solution is or if I should just download the PDF from NY website.
3. What other documents have you send , if you have applied for 485 and also have EAD?

Once again, any help on this is highly appreciated.

Thanks.

i did it a few years ago in NYC. took my old passport and proof of address (utility bill). I did not carry any US immigraiton documents, but had a valid H1 stamped on old passport at the time.

Check what juridiction you fall under (DC or NY) before you go.

The process by itself was straight forward. I have seen that the Mondays and Fridays are very busy days for the consulate in NY, in case you plan to go in person.

I have known people who have done this via mail without problems, though its too much risk for my comfort level. Also, I live close to NYC to it was easier for me to just walk-in.

Thank you. But I am looking for a reply from someone who has done it recently because of the online application rule.

i renewed my passport like 2 months back, I am from PA, so if you are from Philadephia, PA you can (not sure need to) to apply in CGI-NYC.

I send in the documents that tejonidhi mentioned above. But instead of

4) my I 797 copy Attested for H1B( i never told them I applied for AOS)

I had used my EAD so I send in a Notarized copy of my current EAD.

Also I did not fill any form online and got it in approx 10 days.

Hope it helps.

I am sure that there is no online application as of now for NewYork consulate. There are online forms for Houston and DC( I am aware of it as my friends applied their passports from those two places).

We applied for renewal by mail on Sep 8th (I sent it on sept 8th) and we received the new PP today. I sent the EAD copy and H4 copy (notarized) along with the degree copy + application + National interest waiver application. Took 10 days from the day we sent and received. We never expected this from our Indian consulate...

What do you mean by degree certificate? Are you talking about Bachelor or master degree certificate? Do we really need to send degree certificate?

Atleast Bachelor Degree Certificate if ECNR to be placed on Passport. Otherwise I have seen ECR on passports and then we had to send copy of degree certificate to make it ECNR.
