You can contact the Chennai consulate by checking this link: http://chennai.usconsulate.gov/nonimmigrant_visas/contact-information.html

Here is info on the Chennai consulate website about the PCC here:


For my fiance going through Mumbai consulate, they just want the Passport Office PCC, not the local one. He received a local one about 6 - 7 months ago before he knew that only the one from the Passport Office was required, but he was thinking to include it anyways - just for added evidence, but it's not necessary.

Hope this helps and I hope you have better luck than we did getting an electronic response from your embassy -- they don't seem to respond to us other than an auto-reply which didn't answer our questions. Keep in mind though, our question was not regarding the PCC but something else all together different.

Thanks and good luck!
