For filing 485 you need the PD to be current. For Consular Processing (CP), dates need not be current. You indicate that you want your application to be processed with CP option and the Consulate (in this case, Consulate in India) will schedule the interview when you are dates are current. You can check with a lawyer how you can abandon 485 and switch to CP. But make sure you are knowledgeable with the necessary facts/information as CP can be a long wait if you are in EB3-I category. You may lose the benefits of 485 when July 2007 fiasco happened where you were able to file 485 and the dates retrogressed and meanwhile you can still enjoy EAD and AP for travelling. This option will not be there if you choose CP.
