If you have been married less than two years, I'd say you might not be successful at this juncture. Married more than two years, possible, although we are seeing a number now coming through the pipeline in similar scenarios who have been rejected for unknown reasons other than possibly as a means of causing certain PRs to give up their PR. I don't know of any other reasons though, that just comes to mind as something they might do.

Not necessarily. We've had some here that have gone almost 12 months. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme nor reason behind it either. Having said that, it seem if there are western citizens involved it tends to be of a shorter duration but maybe that because we don't see or hear of all instances.

In fact at the moment Indian PR applications are typically taking 9 months+ for approval/rejection.

Some of the better placed PR applicants are getting it in 6 months.

In the past, they used to do outright rejection of below average applicants in 2 months flat. But thats not the case anymore.

I guess quick rejection is less of punishment, they would rather want to drag it for close to year and then reject as a more appropriate punishment to the potential abusers. :-|

BTW, Mine application is now pending from 8 months.

Or they just want to avoid more paper work as surely a significant number of rejected must reapply shortly.
