Is original hard copy of the I797-B required during consulate processing interview?

Is the original hard copy of the I797-B required during consulate processing interview? My employer is giving me only the pdf copy.

Hi @tarunsidana

Original copy is usually required by US embassy. If employer is not giving it, then you can get a color print.

If US embassy would still require it, then they will issue a form 221g to submit the original copy.
