    Mumbai - 400026.
    0800-1300 & 1400-1500

    Gujarat Chambers Building, Shri Ambika Mills, Ashram Road, Ahmedabad - 380009 .
    0800-1300 & 1400-1500

    Please remember to watch out for the emails around 1:00 - 1:30 pm, so that you can submit your PP for stamping on the same day. I ended up missing today's deadline of 3pm and essentially losing one day.

    Good luck,
    G Pawar

    Hi GPawar,

    Do they specifically mention only these VFS ? I have my interview in Mumbai but then will proceed to North East on vacation. If it is any VFS, Calcutta is much convenient (and economic) for me. Also do they have an option to submit the passport to consulate directly?

    Ok, Those who have not sent flowers, consider sending them. And everybody please take 10 minutes and email the news out to reporters, friends, and family. It has a ripple effect. Also talk about it to your coworkers. Text, orkut, or call your friends.

    These assumptions marked in red are incorrect. ROW has been consolidated into 1 category to simplify the visa bulletin. ICMP countries exceed the quota, that's why they have separate entries. If another country exceeds the quota U.K. for example, then it'll have it own column in the visa bulletin. The quota for EB-ROW is 40K - per country limit for ICMP for that category X 4. That's why EB3 India has been getting screwed ever since they re-interpreted the spillover rules (in the middle of 2008). Otherwise, you would see EB3 ICMP get at least 8K GCs in 2009.

    1) Each (EB1/2/3) - 28.6% WW quota = 40040
    2) 5 subscription cataegories under each EB category: I,P,C,M,ROW
    ) Assumption - USCIS distributes equal share amon3g these 5 different subscription categories = 40040/5 =8008 in each EB category for a particular subscription category.


    EB3 All = 40040 ( 0.286 x 140000)
    EB3 ALL = EB3 I + EB3 C + EB3 M + EB3 P + EB3 ROW

    Assuming equal share of all of these 5 subscription categories - 40040/5 = 8008 applications to be worked for "Assigning the visa number" not " for granting the visa (IN other words physical greencard order)"

    7% + 2% = 9% country specific limit is meant for "Granting the visa - Ordering Physical Green card" out of "Applications which have been assigned a visa number" NOT FOR "Assigning the visa number"

    Pls have one or two brief explanations of our plight and solution ideas on to be voted by all in the community.

    i have received this email from, and believe that the new administration can bring change for us:

    {We wanted to tell you about a new feature on which lets you bring your ideas directly to the President.

    It's called the Citizen's Briefing Book, and it's an online forum where you can share your ideas, and rate or offer comments on the ideas of others.

    The best-rated ones will rise to the top, and after the Inauguration, we'll print them out and gather them into a binder like the ones the President receives every day from experts and advisors. If you participate, your idea could be included in the Citizen's Briefing Book to be delivered to President Obama. }

    You guys are just too lazy to study new technologies that is ever changing. You are more interested in having beers and watching football

    Let us talk about the "skills" introduced by H1/L1/offshore companies

    a) One guy takes the phone interview for 15 other guys with "skills" they preted to have
    b) Lying on the resume with "skills" that you don't have, so that you can learn the "skill" at the expense of the client
    c) "Skill" in Violating B1 visa laws and sending people on B1 to do actual work to client
    d) "Skill" in violating L1 law which is used to drive down the wages by 20-30%
    e) "Skill" demonstrated by indian offshorers to enter into a contract with a large corporation where they will provide warm bodies in exchange for a very low billing rate. Client wouldn't have any ability to interview the incoming cosultant, which means the offshorer employee is learning at the expense of the foolish client. Then that will be touted as "savings".
    f) "Skill" of fly-by-night operators to shave off 70% of the billing rate through a 6-level pyramid of contracting companies

    Should I add to this list of "skills" further?

    They may not the FPs for everybody but they can always run the names against suspected persons list.

    It is easier to obtain names than finger prints.

    Hi All,
    I got the I-485 approval/welcome notice from USCIS for myself and my spouse today. But the wierd thing is that my NSC online status still shows RFE response received and case pending (from 2008)...the welcome notice says I should expect to receive the card in 3 weeks...guess I am greened.
    Anyone else face a similar situation?

    PD: Feb 16th, 2006

    Except for the Priority date (Feb 16th 2006) everything else is different. I got a response to my Status Request by snail mail today that my case is pending adjudication by an officer and please call us back if you don;t hear from us in 6 months!

    Congrats to you anyway! Hope there is light at the end of the tunnel for me. :)

    Yes agree. The point is that for an example in September 2008 if you used AC21 then on that date you and your employer claimed that your skills are matching for "particular EB3 job classification" . Now if you go interfiling to USCIS in March 2009 then USCIS doubt as logically employer ca not establish the "natural skill progression" within 6 months.

    One more thing - RFEs. Although people used AC21 in 2007 or start of 2008, just recently USCIS sent RFEs to many. All of them have just finished replying those RFEs in which hthey claimed that they are still working on a "same job" matching EB3 skill. My employer sent that RFE response in May 2009. So my clock starts again from May 2009. In December 2009 it is almost impossible for my employer to show that " I am fit for advanced skills". So this is the glitch that lot many lawyers are strongly hesitant to proceed on interfiling.

    But I have already taken the promoton on Jan 2009 (raise and change in job requirements since I filed perm) and moved to the new eb2 position...I dd that after a year and half from eb3 485..... the job is same/similar but requirements and skills have changed

    but as you mentioned
    I should stll be ok and just make sure I interfile 485 after 3 years ?

    Re-route the flower from USCIS to the two hospitals makes the flowers go steps farther and will definately make bigger noise to get attention. That is great.

    guys where is the whole EB-Retrogression message in all this?

    We are getting carried away and forgetting the main reason this campaign was started: draw attention to EB retrogression, USCIS wastage of visa numbers etc

    Let me ask you a simple question.. WHY ARE YOU SUPPORTING THIS FRAUDULANT ACTIVITY??? .... think for a minute and then decide whether to reply me back or not.. bye....

    Dear L1Fraud,

    Please let me know if you need support from me. You can PM me.

    When I complained to ICE and other authorities, I did not seek any support from this forum as there are many free raiders and will only pull you down. I and Angelfire did all alone. Angelfire did most of the job.

    For any one who is opposing this, my question:

    Why should US give us Green Cards? Why should they even extend H1 beyond 6 years?. If they do not extend H1, always new guys can keep coming on L1/H1 and the cost to employers will be much less. USCIS can have lots of money for H1 renewals. Only the body shoppers and end clients will benefit. Are you supporting more body shopping?

    L1 dumping is VIOLATION. They can not work at client's place. When there is a competition, it should be on fair terms. If your pay is XXX K, other H1 or US Citizen/GC holder will compete with you for that salary plus minus 5-10 %. But these OUTSOURCE company's that dump L1 are competing for that job with 30-40 K. Can you guys believe this? Ask that guy from that BIG outsouce company, he will tell you, he is on H1. Take him for a drink, he will cry infront of you that he is paid peanuts and is on L1. He took this job as he wants to come to US and that his spouse can work. So he can afford to work for that peanut. Can H1 holder compete with these guys where our spouses can not work? Even Citizens and GC's can not compete due to cost of living being higher.

    If you are on H1, at least you can not cheat on W2. But in L1, there is no minimum wage rule.

    If you do not want to support the OP, it is OK. But do not stop some one trying to correct the violations.

    Dear L1Fraud: May I request you to please become Donor? You can post such things in Donor forum and there you can have some meaningful debate and not personal attacks.

    I am telling you, this is all great!!. It is working, do not doubt it. It has to be this way for a news story. This makes a great story. Also canceling orders sends wrong messages, we care for the troops fighting for us, Why cancel.

    We received the snail mail welcome notice today after receiving the email ADIT stuff last Tuesday (August 10). That makes it five business days. On the notice it says that we should receive our permanent resident card within three weeks. Anybody who actually received it within three weeks?

    I received it within a week...

    CIS sent welcome notice on 8/2, and they sent the cards on 8/9...

    But this was early Aug. Now it may take few days more due to many approvals in the pipeline..When you receive another update (like post decision activity) saying that they mailed decision notice, that usually means they mailed the cards...

    I understand each and every part of that DOS statement.

    Peace! Relax! Let's wait and watch!

    What part of DOS statement

    "All numbers available to these categories under the FY-2007 annual numerical limitation have been made available. "

    do you not understand ?

    2007 quota is used up. We need to wait until OCT for 2008 quota. :(
