H4 - Drop Box-Passport Status

Hi Guys,

My spouse was eligible to use to drop box for H4 Visa so we used drop box facility and submitted the documents. 

We have submitted around May last week and till now there is no status . When we checked with Consulate we got the below email 

We got the below response: 

Your application is pending under Section 221(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) for administrative processing. There is no definite time frame for this processing as it depends on the individual circumstances of each case. The Department of State is continuously working to expedite visas. We appreciate your patience. Please be assured that we will contact you as soon as the processing in your case is complete. 

Can any one suggest what is that mean . 

Please suggest

221(g) means more evidence is needed before decision is made. Please keep in mind that drop box facility is still very new. It could also mean that some clerk made a routine entry in the system after picking up H-4 documents and passport from the box and it will automatically change to approved once process is complete. Allow 90-120 days for this.

All the best
