processed is different from approved

actually if you track the threads on immigrationportal.com, a ton of old-timers have gotten their GCs. A large number of these were EB3-India [2001-2004], so that 18k number does not look odd to me.
Does it look odd to you? Why?

That was an old news. Around 60000 visa's were pre-allocated to pending applications before July 2nd, 2007. I would be very surprised if the numbers are not much more than 18000 for India EB3. India used to get around 40-45 K visas per year for all EB categories before 2005 since the soft quota was introduced. All these numbers are avilable on USCIS website.

How can India get more than its quota ie 9% per country limit??

BTW, What is "soft quota"?
