I applied for a Schengen visa via VFS Global.

The application status on the Embassy's portal is showing as "Finished" and my passport is back at the VFS office.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to collect my passport for 9-10 days.

I have not received any email containing objections regarding my visa application from the embassy.

Does this imply that my visa has been approved?

In the general case, when a visa is rejected, does the embassy send out an email regarding the same?

Unfortunately there is no way for us to tell, absolutely no way. Everything we are going to say will be guesswork.

Does this imply that my visa has been approved?

No, It doesn't indicate the outcome.

You have to wait for the 11th day. Or you can provide the required authority letter to another person to collect the passport, on your behalf, earlier.
