Rupesh- (guest from Mumbai, Maharashtra, India) 09/06/2012 03:08:06 AM
My interview was scheduled on 28th August 2012 at Mumbai 7.45am slot. Process starts at around 7 am. I joined the queue. Around 100 people already in the queue. Waited for around 15 min in the queue. Meanwhile consulate representative told to ready with passport and interview letter. Then I entered in the first room. Security checking done in this room. Then I entered in the big hall. There first I took my token and then joined the queue for finger prints. After finger prints, I was waiting for my turn. No one checked my single document. Waited for 5-10 minutes for my turn. Here goes my interview.

Be confident. Make eye contact. Give answers short and satisfactory. Be well dressed. I wore tie and blazer that might helped me.
