No not really. But it depends on where you apply. Like I know a friend who applied in mumbai and was rejected twice before getting a 3 month single entry visa even when he had electives & CS confirmation in his hand. Delhi is the coolest place to get a visa. I got a 10 yr without any problem.

Consult someone for sure. Better safe than sorry since Mumbai has the highest rate of visa rejections in India.
