Soon, the people have been approaching their concerned officials and most of them got a confirmation that the calls are fraud. When such scam alerts are posted on social media, several hundreds of them responded about the similar experience. Most of them are threatened about the serious trouble and the consequences. They are asked to pay money to get the problem fixed.
Most of them are asked not to terminate the calls. The USCIS New Delhi Field Office or the Deparment of the State in India has been sending emails. These emails come with attachments that request for money to get the visa to USA approved. All the USA government email addresses end with gov. USCIS will never send any emails about the immigrant or non-immigrant visas. USCIS will also never ask any individual to transfer money. The USA State Department warns about the scams and the emails, letters. Here is their official statement:

All applicants should be familiar with information about DV scams provided by the Federal Trade Commission. Applicants are encouraged to review the rules and procedures for the DV program so that you know what to expect, when to expect it, and from whom".
