Default I changed my testing region from "Asia" to "India"

Hey I got same problem maybe because my mistake at online form. India is independent testing region than Asia. So you cant schedule in India with Asia permit.

So what you can do?

Call ECFMG, tell them I want to change my testing region from Asia to India.
He will suggest you to Fax them request. Remember note down his name. Its important. Write his name in request letter. And fax them same day. Call
again. ask if they got your fax, if yes you are almost done. Ask them for email confirmation about receipt of fax (I didn't get any) and waitt.....
