She already has USA visa right? so why she needs that? Check BLS.

I try not to apologies but sometimes do it. not because its right thing but it benefits me.

Oh I see.

Off topic and nothing related to you/your mom.
Many of my Friends who have visited so many countries have hard time to get US visa. Now almost all of them have permanent residence Canada.
So I guess this will help them to visit US.

You should be able to get this information from Indian consulate of USA. If they don't provide that service they may have the necessary information published on the website itself. Best if luck

to be honest Dont know OP. But I dont like as I am always suspicious of such threads. Here is from google links

What is a Police Clearance Certificate (PCC)?
A:

Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) is issued to Indian Passport holders in case they have applied for Residential Status, Employment or Long term visa or for immigration. PCC cannot be issued for persons going abroad on Tourist Visa.

https://www.mea.gov.in/police-clearance-certificate.htm

So my question is if applying for PR in Canada why you couldn't get PCC in India before leaving.
Q: I am an Indian National staying abroad, Local Government has asked me to submit Police Clearance certificate.

How to apply for a PCC at an Indian Mission?
What are the documents required for a PCC application?
What is the procedure of issuance of a PCC?

A:

The application form can be downloaded from the website of the Indian Mission and submitted along with the supporting documents indicated.
For a checklist of documents required, please check with the Indian Mission concerned through website or in person.
On receipt of a PCC application along with required documents, the Indian Mission will forward the application to concerned Passport Issuing Authority (PIA) in India. The Mission will issue a PCC to applicant on receipt of status report from PIA for the same.

Note: For foreign nationals, Police Clearance Certificate needs to be obtained from the District Police or the FRRO at the place of residence in India. Copies of such a certificate may be attested by the Indian Mission on production of the original.

She could have applied before but usually in India when you apply for PCC, they will ask a request letter or some sort of proof , which she doesnt have but nor she got a request letter from IRCC asking for PCC. :)

Indian counsalate in San Fransico says they won't be able to priovde PCC because she is a visito but Indian Counsalate at Newyork says they can issue PCC for vistitor's as well. Called BLS Toronto, they can also issue PCC for visitor's as long as they are within Canada.
God knows what's happening with these people !!!!!!!!!!!

very clear.

I am still not sure how you are able to apply for PR status while visiting US or on US visit visa. That is manipulation of system.
As I said 1000 times I dont like such manipulation.
Here is the hint how my Friends managed PR. They just paid like 500K or "Invested" in Canada. And got PR status. And I dont like it but it is legal and Canada promotes that as business.

Simple. Try to obey laws. Laws of land in India or US or Canada.

it may be worth a visit to the consulate in SF (show them IRCC request for PCC), perhaps talking to the concerned manager/supervisor or consul would work.
Otherwise go apply @ NY if possible.
Last resort: request IRCC for more time telling them she is visiting USA and that it would be provided as soon as she is back in home country.
