Default Pending with Lodgement Date - Has CO been allocated?

I submitted the visa under SMC in July. The website shows Decision as "Pending" and Lodgement Date as "07 July 2014". Does this mean that CO has already started looking into my case or does it just convey that application has been submitted with required document?

As far as I would read it I would say that they have registered your application on that date and all time lines would go from that date. Have you checked the branch time line for your type of visa ?

Yes, it says 1-6 months for London branch. However, I do remember reading in some forum that it was good only for applications with job offer and for non job offer applications (like mine) it could take up to several months to allocate CO and up to couple of years to grant visa

A couple of years sounds excessive!
