My H1B drop box appointment is scheduled for June 29,2023 (bhakrid) at Chennai VAC. It seems all VACs are on holiday on June 29,2023 (bhakrid) including Chennai VAC. as per https://ustraveldocs.com/in/en/step-4#holidays
Has anyone faced this situation?
Did you call VFS and confirm? I would assume they won’t book if it is a holiday.
Yes. I sent an email to the ustraveldocs already. I called them. seems it is out of office hours. I will call them tomorrow. Thanks for your help.

I had booked my appointment on a holiday at Chennai VAC and planned to drop documents at Mumbai VAC,I went to drop off my passport but they were closed, i didn’t even know it was a holiday. Thankfully they took my papers next day and my stamping was done and received passport in ~2 weeks.
You should be fine.
