It is possible to apply for an e-visa instead. Go to InfoBook and search for India (Stockholm) for more information

Longer processing time at the Chinese Visa Application Service Center (OSL)

We are experiencing long waiting time to book appointment for applicants at the Chinese Consulate in Oslo – up to three weeks. This is not including the normal handling time at the embassy.
We recommend all applicants apply at their earliest convenience. At least 1 month before travels.

New rule for China both in GOT and STO regarding biometrics

There’s a new rule for China both in GOT and STO which says that if you have given biometrics but changed passport in any way, you need to submit biometrics again for the new passport.
 
So to be short – the fingerprints are only valid for that current passport you are applying for.
