Nicholas Manring, consul, American Consulate General, Chennai, said to TOI that they are going to organize 1,300 interviews each day the whole of the week except Wednesday on which 1,500 interviews are expected to be conducted. Out of these, US student visa interviews are likely to be around 200 to 300.
