No sir it won’t

No it won't. I have done it this past July.

Did a similar thing in Aug’18. Stopped over in Dubai for 3 days before coming to India for Dropbox stamping. Was put in 221 G and called for an interview. Was again put in 221 G after the interview and had to wait for 3 weeks to get approval. While here, I saw many people getting called for interview and being put in 221G. I guess Dubai or not, there is an increased chance of you getting interviewed and being put in 221 G so keep that in mind. Having said that, mine could be an isolated case as well.
