Lost Indian passport while on trip to India with new visa stamping

My husband went to India for visa stamping and had Dropbox appointment in Delhi. His passport was stamped and delivered. Unfortunately today while traveling he lost his passport. He is on H1b with new stamping. I see there is a forum topic regarding the same and we will follow all the steps . He will not be eligible for Dropbox and will have to go for in-person appointment.
Now with how much delay and lack of appointments will he be eligible for expedited appointment? If so how to apply for that.
He has his return ticket looked for May 3rd to come back to US.
Please help.
