The generally accepted time for overseas partner applications is 5-6 months and even much longer where an external security check is required.
Indians can be thankful that is not required in most cases it seems, even though India is officially a High Risk country.

If I was a CO in India and people were ringing up all the time from 1-2 months on when it could be that very little has actually happened depending on the numbers of applications on hand, I'd be getting somewhat pissed off and might also eventually feel like being rude too.

There is something called patience and applicants will normally be contacted when the visa application process requires them to be contacted.
If people do keep calling frequently, what do you think that does?The people working on processing applications are interrupted and the more it happens, the slower the processing becomes.

You should stop being a bunch of impatient fools and let the system work.

It is not the CO who is contacted for this.They have a visa information helpline where you have to tell your passport number and they give you the status.

All the more reason to not bother calling for the information helpline person who will likely have absolutely no direct involvement in processing a visa will merely look at a computer screen to see if anything new has been recorded.
It can be that things will not change from one month to the next just because a CO may have only got through 45 of the 50 or so applications that may be ahead of yours in the queue and so there will be no change in that which might be recorded.
I think " forwarded on to the final decision maker or whatever " is just a standard phrase for the CO has your application along with many others.

We called the DIAC in Canberra and according to them the DFAT emailing system wasn't working properly when the CO sent the email back in feb about the interview in march. Turns out that the DFAT emailing system wasn't sending emails to hotmail and yahoo etc... accounts. So now our visa is being delayed, so we wrote to the head person in india and looks like immigration isn't doing anything about it, and so looks like our processing time will be about 6 months

Shouldn't immgration tell other people in immgration that there is a problem with their emailing system? I think our CO should have followed up with a phone call because their emailling system wasn't working properly.

Modern technology has its gliches and it'll depend on the nature of what occurred just when Immi may have become aware.
I'm just actually wondering what the connection between Canberra and India would be re the emails for family visas are dealt with by Immi at the different countries anyway.
But it's water under the bridge now so nought that can be done and there can be many other things that cause variations to times or even rejections of applications.
The visa processes have never been an exact step by step approach and never will be and the sooner you accept that and just await the outcome, the easier it will be on you.
