@MysticRiver with respect to the 189 points tested stream, it means that the applications from Nov 26th have been allocated, isn't it? Also, the date of the last application, which has been allocated is not available. Correct?

Yes, it means all applications submitted on/before 26th Nov are allocated to COs (at the time the web page was updated).

Also, the date of the last application, which has been allocated is not available. Correct?
Isn't that the same as above?

o_O
The following is my though process:
1. A lot of applications have been allotted to the COs' recently. (since the page was updated last week only.)
2. Out of the lot allotted, the earliest lodgement date, come to be 26th Nov.
3. Thus a number of applications from 26th Nov have been issued to CO's, but the latest application date is unknown.

Couldn't this be the case, since a number of applicants in November have already received the grants, (as per immitracker), and the latest lodgement dates who have received their grants is coincidentally Nov 26th.
:confused: Please correct if this is wrong!
The terminology which DHA uses is quite confusing at times, just like the legal papers/contracts!!.

After your post, I read that page (to be honest, didn't do that thoroughly before), and they actually mentioned it's the earliest date.

DIBP said:
The tables below list the earliest lodgement dates for applications that have been allocated to processing teams. You can use this information to calculate when your application may be allocated and to ensure your application is complete and ready for assessment.

So, you might be correct. But I am a bit confused what is the use of this information, if it is the earliest date. How can one use this information to calculate when his application may be allocated? Doesn't it make more sense to update the table with the latest allocated application so that people can understand till what date the application has been allocated and how much backlog there are?

I had been in doubt for quite some time, and have been returning to that page ever since. Still, left it there, since didn't bother me in any way. But after lodging, became a frequent visitor and tried my best to understand the logic behind it. ;)

How can one use this information to calculate when his application may be allocated?
Actually, the earlier updation of the page had the DOE 25th Oct as the earliest lodgement date. I am not sure when it came into being though. So, it took around 3-4 months minimum to get renewed to Nov 26th. Meanwhile, the number of applicants from Dec on-wards would be low because of the low number of ITA's issued. So I believe it won't take much time for processing them. However, there's no clear clue to calculate the allocation dates in future, since everything is ambiguous. :)

Doesn't it make more sense to update the table with the latest allocated application
Of course it would. DIBP is always DIBP. They tend to provide insufficient data in the case of processing, and the applicants are always on a tight-rope. :D
Let's wait and see for the page's next update around mid-April as they've said.

@Dileep . Was the last update of this page (Allocation dates) done on March 18th ?
As you have mentioned above "the earlier updation of the page had the DOE 25th Oct as the earliest lodgement date" . At that time was it mentioned that this page will be next updated in mid March.

As of now, its mentioned that the next updation of allocation dates will be on early April. Do they always update the allocation date correctly ? Have you noticed the previous trends? Can we believe that this page will be updated for sure before April mid.

I am also confused with the wordings they use (the earliest lodgement date is 26th November 2017). But when we see the updates from immitracker, it seems that no visa's has been granted for applications lodged after 26th November 2017.
 
@MysticRiver .. As per the Allocation dates page, the earliest lodgement date of applications allocated to processing is 26th November 2017.
According to the meaning of sentence, it means all applications lodged after 26th November 2017 till today has been allocated for processing.
So someone who have lodged application after 26th November 2017 should have been either granted a visa or atleast contacted by case officer. By looking at the trends shown in immitracker, none of the application lodged after 26th November got CO contact nor VISA grant. So i am confused with their wordings.

But my main question is will the GSM allocation date page gets updated with up to date allocation dates correctly as mentioned ? . The next update is expected in early April, which should be around this time. As i haven't seen the previous updates in that page, I was just checking whether that page is always kept up to date (if anyone have observed the previous updates).

Yes, it was updated on or around March 18th.

Do they always update the allocation date correctly ?
Prior to last update, the page showed "will be updated in Early Feb" which didn't happen till March mid. So, not sure to entirely believe they'd ensure the next update happens by April mid. :)

@Dileep. Based on your reply , it seems your initial assumption was right.
So till March mid, the GSM allocation page showed that the earliest lodgement date of application allocated to processing is 25th Oct 2017. But some of my friends who lodged application on October end (28th and 27th) got their visa grant around December 20th. If they were only considering applications lodged till Oct 25th , then they might have only got it after March 18th (after they updated the date from Oct 25th to 26th November).

But another possibility is that GSM allocation date page is not being updated properly without delay. They might be updating this at a later point of time after they start processing.

Yeah, and there could be umpteen possibilities, but nothing can be finalized until the dept themselves provides the exact info. Anyway, the allocation dates help us to know the earliest lodgement date, considered in the latest allocation as per the page, and that's it. No further info until the next update. :)
