You need to file I 824 form and let USCSIS know that you want to transfer your case to consulate. If you are from Mumbai consulate area then u can do AC I 140. becasue I 824 can take 1-2 years to transfer your details.

While in AC I 140 you just need receipt of I 824 and attorney certified package. More details you can get on internet. If you PD is near to current then u can initiate this process and thus with in 3-4 months if PD become current you can get visa interview. Generally they dont ask for hard ship reason for AC I 140 but in your case you can explain about your wait time and impact on your career etc..

To do AC I 140 or normal CP process u need offer letter from employer.
