221(g) pink slip from Chennai Consulate

Hi all,

I’m an incoming MS Computer Engineering student for Fall 2022 and I recently got the 221g pink slip for administrative processing from the Chennai Consulate. The officer told me it’s due to my 1 year of work in avionics/aerospace based startup in India and that I should submit few related info regarding the same. I have emailed them all the information they asked in detail.

My course of study is not even remotely related to TAL subjects. The officer has kept my passport with him.

Would anyone know general timeline that the embassy takes to process this? Also, any idea whether these cases result in a reject?

Thank you in advance.
