Yes today I tried applying for Delhi consulate by using the second EA and I was successful.
Waiting for their response.
To do this you will have to lapse your existing receipt by utilizing all the available 5 attempts. I had scheduled my first appointment in March 2020 and this was cancelled due to closure of consulates in India. After this I had scheduled a regular appointment in September 2020 to request for EA.After this I tried 3 more attempts but still the receipt was not lapsed. When inquired with customer care they said there are 2 more attempts available.Looks like consulate did not consider the first 2 attempts done in March and September due to covid situation. Check with customer care regarding the remaining attempts before proceeding.
While trying to schedule reschedule the appointment my account was locked for 72 hrs.I could not login to my account for 3 days. So avoid repeated logins. You may encounter this situation of account being frozen, so keep this too in mind before proceeding with this plan.
Once your attempts are exhausted a pop up will appear saying you will have to get a new receipt for next attempt.
Cancel the last booked appointment and then proceed with new appointment scheduling.Here you can do mrv fee payment and get a new receipt. Before doing the payment ensure that no receipt is tagged in that page.Also beneficiary account number will be different for every transaction.Check this too. It will take 1-2 business days for receipt to be activated.In my case by mistake I had done payment after my third attempt(thinking it to be the last payment) before the account got locked.After the account was unlocked I tried scheduling the appointment for New Delhi location with new receipt.I was successful doing that and an Emergency request button was also enabled.
