I had requested them that I want to get my docs couriered. I received a mail from HO on 6th Aug that my docs are ready and I shud arrange for a courier.
I made the arrangements and the docs were picked up from HO on 7th. The courier delivered it on 11th (monday). It was pretty quick.

Not sure how many days it takes by AirMail.

I have applied for hsmp on March 24th, and my papers were received on March 27th.
My reference number starts with the series same as yours, i.e 2582**.
I have not received any information from HO.
When I have mailed them 10 days back,I have got a reply that they are currently
working on March 25th dated applications, and it will take some time.
Kindly let me know whether I need to call them and ask for my status.

Hi Chellas

Your application should have been processed before mine since my application reached HO on 28th.
I believe every Case Worker is assigned a set of applications, for eg. someone might have been assigned applications from 24th - 27th March, and another case worker might have been assigned 28th March - 31st March (just to say).
So in such a scenario, its possible that the applications received later could be processed earlier.
Nevertheless, your application should be under processing and you should be receiving your docs pretty soon.

I never mailed or phoned them for my application status. I just sent a fax in july that I want to get my docs back by a courier. So, when decision on my case was taken, they mailed me telling that decision is taken and I shud arrange for a courier.

Let me know if you have any more doubts.

Thanks for the comments. Will wait for few more days until I get any feedback from HO, and then
call up and check.
