Don't listen to the embassy - if they say you cannot get a visa on arrival they're wrong, and possibly trying to get at your money on purpose.
Indian citizens with a US visa can get a visa on arrival. It says so in Timatic, which is a database used worldwide by airlines checking passengers, and is based on information directly from local border authorities.
So don't even speak to the embassy - you can get a visa on arrival, full stop.
