OTHER documents required - VFS global - Indian passport in USA

Hello - Can someone please provide suggestions on what VFS implies by OTHER document required? Not sure what else is required beyond the checklist

In case if urs is Tatkal, it doesn’t have Self sworn affidavit listed in the check list.

Self-Sworn Affidavit: This is to confirm that I have been/have not been (select whichever is correct) residing outside India continuously for more than Five years.

Hello - Can someone got approval from consulate if VISA status is pending, as per vfs checklist its mentioned “Note: If the visa status is pending, please obtain prior approval from the Embassy/Consulate
Previously in CKGS i remember we had option to select pending at uscis and then enter the application number, can we do the same now i am little confused as VFS put as NOTE in checklist.

if we need approval how can we get the same from consulate
