Long Delay in Processing of Parents Category Visitors Visa

Satyadas Chakrabarti made this Official Information request to Immigration Advisers Authority

The request was refused by Immigration Advisers Authority.

From: Satyadas Chakrabarti

Dear Immigration Advisers Authority,

I have submitted my application along with the required documents to TT Services,Kolkata, India on December 2, 2016 and as per communication the same has been received by Immigration authorities at New Delhi for processing on December 5, 2016
We are yet to receive our visas from their end till date. It did not happen to me on previous occasions while I applied. for visitors visas and received the visas within ten days from the date of application. I understand as we had to go for medicals it may take little longer time. But it is taking more than 24 days which has been spelled in the website as maximum time taken for issuing Parent Category Visas.
My particulars are furnished hereunder:
Invoice cum Receipt Number: 2016120200341001
Passport Number : L4064942 Name : SATYADAS CHAKRABARTI
Passport Number : G7751102 Name : JAYASREE CHAKRABARTI
We (both senior citizens)intend to stay at Auckland for only 3 months from 13th February, 2017 with our only son and his family who are citizens of NZ.
Would you kindly intervene to expedite issuing of visas?
Yours faithfully,
Satyadas Chakrabarti,
