Thanks to all, whoever posted their experiences, those helped me alot in preparing for the interview. I feel the same responsibility to share my experience which can help others.
Interview Date/Time - 8/26/2015 - 10:30AM
Place - Hyderabad

In hyderabad they do not allow people to stand in queue more than 30 mins in advance. So, I reached the office at 10AM.
P.S. - People who come to Hyderabad US consulate, mention about parking problem. I want to mention here that there is no parking problem as such. There is a big parking space available, for which you have to cross the main entrance of consulate and then on right side there is one big function hall for parking. Generally, people do not come so far and they find it difficult to park the car.

We went through the passport checking and security checking. After that we waited in a sitting area for our chance. After 20-25 mins, the coordinators called us and asked to stand in a queue. There they checked the passports and took again the fingerprinting for verification. Then we got a token card and we had to stand in the queue mentioned on the token. In 5-10 mins our chance came. Below is the interaction record with VO -

VO - Good morning. How are you?
Reply - Good morning, I am fine. How are you?

VO - Who is your VISA petitioner?
Reply - <>

VO - For how long are you working with the company?
Reply - <>

VO - What is your designation?
Reply - <>

No more questions asked to me. Questions asked to my wife -

VO - Which place in US will you be staying?
Reply - <>

VO - How many kids do you have?
Reply - <>

VO - Your VISA is approved. Have a great day.
We said - Thank you. Have a nice day.

I carried a lot of supporting documents, like PAN card, Voter Id card, Marriage Certificate and everything else mentioned on immihelp site. But they did not check any other document apart from Passport and the VISA interview appointment confirmation. But it is good if you carry what all mentioned on immihelp. That will boost your confidence.
As mentioned by everyone, keep yourself calm and answer short and precise. Thanks to all who shared their experiences and good luck to all who are going to attend the interview.

Date: Aug-25-2015
Time: 10:30 am
VISA type: L1A Blanket

I had my OFC on 24th Aug and it took only 10 mins. Since we has small kid, I got the priority to enter the OFC and the folks over there put me in the front for Biometric.

Interview with the Consulate on Aug 25 and below are the questions asked:-

1) Which Company are you coming from?
2) What is your area of specialization?
3) What is your designation in the US?
4) Will have Direct reportees in the US office?
5) How many direct reportees you will have in the US office?
6) Will you work for any client?
7) What is your salary in the US?

To my wife:
1) When did you get married?
2) How many kids do you have?
3) Where are you going to stay in the US?

Again, in the Consulate office, it was well organized and the folks over there helped me with what kind of documents you need to carry to the Consulate office for your interview. They were very generous and since we had a small kid, they have put me in the front row.

This entire thing took just 4 mins and finally I heard those magical words "Congratulations and your Visa is offered - Have a Good rest of the day"!!!

I noticed that some of the officers were even asking questions (not sure whether it's for L1-A or L1B but I just over heard those questions while I was waiting for my turn)

- What product do you work
- Why only you and why not someone else from your team?
- What is the functionality of your product

Thanks to this forum for frequent updates on the questions asked recently. I was following this forum and questions till the last min of my interview and I noticed that "What is your" Specialization" is something in common from everyone (especially for L1 candidates)

I wish you all good luck and hope you hear more good news from the followers of this forum.

Best wishes....
