First I would like to thank all the users for posting their experiences, reading past experiences does help in prep up.
Bio-metric was on a day earlier @ BKC Mumbai. Note that OFC is at Trade Center ahead of MTNL building in BKC. As had been covered multiple time in previous posts, OFC was straight forward, 15 mins in and out with a bar code sticker on passport and acknowledgement stamp on the DS160 print out.
Visa interview was schedule 9:00 AM the next day, reached at 8:15 AM. Their was not much queue outside the Consulate office, entered the building after flashing appointment letter to security, barcode stuck on passport scanned enterance and in after security screening.
Once inside, realized there was considerable rush that day and lot of people were queued up for morning slots. Good thing was that there was seating area through with the queue moved and you could occupy seats orderly as you waited for the queue to move and. Was glad to not have to stand for the queue.
One of consulate attendants asked every one to just keep passpot and petition original outside and rest of the documents inside folder/bag. At around 9:39 am entered the building, to be in front of the token counter and got a large sized token sticker put on passwort. Then was asked to move finger scanning counter where left hand 4 fingers were scanned again. Then kept monitoring the LCD screens to check which counter my number would come to. After waiting for aroung an hour my number and stood for my turn from of the VO counter.
VO: Good morning, please slide passport.
Me: Hi, Good morning and slid the passport & petition through the window.
VO: Scanned the barcode sticker on passport, read something on monitor. What work you do for XXX company?

VO: Who is your client?
VO: Where will you be travelling in US?
VO: How long you have been working on this project?
Me: 3 years 2 months now.
VO: What will be your salary?
Me: xx thousand USD.
VO: Have you got know your rights pamplet? Read this later (was given earlier in waiting area for L1/H1 candidates)
Me: Yes ofcourse, I would. Then come the golden words.
VO: Your visa is issued.
Me: Thanks and wish you happy new year ahead.
VO: Wishes back.
My 2 cents, prepare well for questions @ http://www.immihelp.com/l1-visa/l1-visa-stamping-interview-questions.html
. I assume, straight forward crisp answers in laymen language delivered with confidence is the crucial. Found couple of candidates before me blabbered a bit, which only invited more scrutiny questions by the VO.
Thanks and wish you all the best.
