Default help with ECFMG registration and eligibility

Hello. Please forgive me if thee is a similar thread; i searched though.
I'm from Chennai, India and I wish to give my USMLE step 1 by the year-end. I recently graduated from my undergraduate MBBS course. My medical school/college is recognized by FAIMER and in the World Directory of Medical Schools, but there's no entry from the ECFMG in the Sponsors tab of my college in the Directory. I contacted the ECFMG, but they want a letter explaining about my college's details from the accreditation authority of medical schools in India, the Medical Council of India. Can anyone please help me on how to proceed, I'm worried like hell.

That's terrible luck. Did you speak with the Dean? There is no point in directly going to MCI without the help of your medical college as MCI will probably not care. The best thing I can think of is find others in your batch or seniors, speak with the Dean about the issue and ask him to request a letter from MCI confirming accredition of the medical college. If you are facing this issue, its likely that everyone after you will as well. So if you have a sensible Dean, he/she should help you out.
