PCC from india (srilankan citizen)

#1
Im a srilankan national, staying in chennai, india, for the past 19 yrs.
Ive applied for a skilled migrant visa at the Australian Immig. Dept..
Skill assessment is over. Im through with it..

Now the case officer has asked me to apply for police clearance.
Since im not indian,but staying in india,
from where shud i apply for police clearance ?

Chennai Commissioner of police or do i have to go all the way to Delhi ?
_______________________________________________________________

NOTE:
I have got the police clearance from chennai commissioner of police and sent the pcc to the case officer.
Case officer replied saying that i have not got the correct pcc and also that it is not from the approved indian body..

According to Form 47p (instructions for Character Requirements - Penal Clearance Certificate)
Go to w ww.immi.gov.au/allforms/character-requirements/character-penal.pdf

page no-8 under the section "INDIA"
It says for Resident non-citizens - in person at the Ministry of Home Affairs of their state

I immediately went to the Ministry of Home Affairs (fort st.george, chennai)
and they are saying they no longer issue police clearance certificates for foreigners in india for the past 6 years.
However, they have given direct authority to Superintendent of police/Commissioner of Police to issue police clearances.

Now my question is,
I've got the police clearance from the Commissioner
But according to the Australian Immig.Dept, have i got the police clearance from the correct indian body or is the case officer wrong with his assessment ?

I have visited many places/ppl and nobody knows how to help me out.
Few places i have visited seeking info but was of no use:
ministry of home affairs (fort st.george,)
Bureau of Immigration (shaastri bhavan)
tamilnadu police headquarters (opposite marina beach)
commissioner of police (st.thomas mount)
my local police station
srilankan embassy high commission (alwarpet) --the person is on leave until next wed so cudnt get any info


Can someone possibly provide any sort of advice / info ?
