Hey waitng,

Welcome to the Forum!!
AHC New Delhi is taking 30-31 weeks since date of application to allocate case officer to an application that is roughly 217 days maximum.
Below is the link from AHC New Delhi website which has the current processing time frames of the services they provide:-

As for acknowledgement letter, AHC New Delhi doesn't send it to every applicant. You can call them and check for your peace.

Sorry for being the bearer of bad new but you have a long wait ahead of you. I'd suggest you take up a hobby or something cause this process can drive a person insane especially the lack of communication from AHC's end is the cause of more stress and depression. Current indicative processing time frame as per AHC New Delhi is 8-11 months. The global standard processing time frame as per DIBP is 12 months.

Keep yourself busy and you won't even feel this waiting time.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
