Reached there at about 8:15 and was done with security checking and was told to wait in the lobby there. Actually, I was finding it hard to get a good night and proper sleep the day before so my eyes were very very RED which scared the shit out of me. Asked the security guard about rest room and he pointed out the interviewing room. So, I got a chance to have a slight look of the Interview Room in advance which slightly boosted my confidence. After I entered the interviewing room, I saw some very confident applicants were denied visa. After standing in line for about 20 minutes, my turn came in.

Me: Hello sir, Good Morning.
VO-Good Morning. Pass me your documents
Me- Here you go.
VO- (He directly looked at the backside of Transcripts where passout year and Percentage was written). So, is this your Master's Transcript ?
Me-No sir, it is of Bachelor's.
Vo-(After turning to the front face of transcript). Oh oh ! So, is this an Integrated PhD or Direct PhD?
Me- It is a direct PhD Program sir.
VO- What did you do after your graduation?
Me-I worked as a Mechanical Engineer in XYZ Pvt.Ltd. for 6 months and later I committed myself in finding a good faculty and university.
VO-Plans after graduation?
Me-Sir, it has been my life-long ambition to become a Professor here in IOE, the Institute of Engineering at TU and to work under Dr. XYZ who is currently involved in research I am interested in. In order for me to realize that goal,I need a PhD. 
VO-What will you be researching on?
ME-I will be researching on advanced manufacturing sir.
VO- How many universities did you apply to?
Me-6 sir.
VO-What were your other three choices?
Me- (Actually I had applied to some good universities, so didn't have to lie here.)
Then he started signing my passport and told me to go to counter no. 11.
Me-Thank you very much sir. Have a nice day.
So, if you have decent scholarship and you show some confidence in your answers, visa will be approved, I guess. Best of luck for all applicants and I hope this experience helps.
