    Hi Shubhasiddarth,

    Yes it has changed from 2012 dec (i think).
    Now you need to visit the consulate for 2 days.

    1) Fill the DS160 information online
    2) Once you complete that, then it will ask you to pay .
    You can do it online through NEFT or other options.
    3) Once the payment is confirmed , the step by step online wizard will then ask you to choose the Actual Visa Date (where you meet officer),
    Then the next page will ask you to choose the previous day when you submit bio-metrics.

    You cannot casually browse to check the dates now.
    Since we submit bio-metrics separately, the actual visa interview moves quickly.
