What is VFS confirmation date?

I’ve been asked by my employer to submit VFS confirmation date ( as filled in DS 160 form). My appointment with the consulate has already been booked. What exactly is VFS confirmation date and from where do I fill that?

Dear Friend , Obviously your employer does not have uptodate information.

VFS ceased to exist for US visa in India from 26 th sept 2012.

Prior to that, documents were required to be submitted to VFS in Mumbai Consulate at least 4 working days prior to appointment. That requirement does not exist anymore

Now you have to go twice on separate days as per Appointment. once for fingerprinting in OFC which has replaced VFS and second time to consulate for actual Interview.
