    Hi Lithika,
    You cannot apply your oci here and then get in India. Your oci will be shipped to US address only.
    It takes minimum of 6 weeks to get oci,in some cases even longer. If you are planning to travel to India apply for entry visa or tourist visa here. Once you reach India you can apply for oci in FRRO office near your area. After getting oci , you can register in the same office with visa and oci , then you can stay for more than 6 months.
