Default Passport Renewal at Indian Consulate SFO

Does anybody know how long is it taking to renew passport (after 10 yrs expiry of first passport) if one sends the renewal application thru mail at Indian Consulate SFO ?

Would it be faster if I submit my application in person at the consulate counter ?

The website says 15 to 20 working days......

Thanks.

Default Mine took 10 days - I submitted and picked up in person

Mine took just 10 days. I think processing by mail adds a few days overhead

I applied in person in SF and received after w week. If you submit in person you have to pick it up in person too. Add maybe another 4-5 days by mail.

Default Same day for me

I Live in San francisco. I submitted my application in the morning and told them that I am traveling and want expedited service. They charged me some extra dollars (worth it) and I collected my passport at around 4 pm on same day.
