Thanks a lot guys, Here is the whole timeline and interrutpions:)

Moved to a new Job in June 2009. Asked my boss to do a Eb2 GC in November but he denied.

Again talked to my boss to move to Eb2 in June 2010 and he agreed. Started the process in July 2010.

Labor was filed on Dec 13th and was approved on Dec 21st, 2010.

Applied for I140 in premium processing on Jan 21st, 2011,

Approved I140 on Feb 11th, 2011 with my old Priority date of March 2003.

My wife was not part of my original 485 so we started preparing her application before we send a letter to transfer my 485.

Had Some birth certificate problems (missing name) for my wife took us more time and finally we filed her application on March 10th.

We were preparing to send a letter for my 485 in the mean time on March 11 USCIS issued an RFE on my 485 asking "there are two I140 for me and which one I want to use for my 485?".

On April 5 we replied to RFE to use the new I140 and it was received on April 6th.

Finally on April 11 I received my Approval Emails.

No SR, No contact with Congressman/Senator no infopass.

Hope this helps.

Again keep hope guys you will all get it, just do not give up.

Over last three years I must have tried to start my GC in Eb2 like N number of times, while trying for it I got laid off due to a merger; found a job with a new group (My company is a fortune 10 company). At new Group I started the same talk and it finally paid off.

Sadly my friend the chances of scrutiny and denial are high with a 3 degree
From your PD i am assuming that you have EAD so enjoy that freedom and looking at the bright side more EB3 port more the EB3 line will clear before you.

I would say abhishek is not the lead but somewhere in between. He followed the lead of other porters. That why CIS has recognized the same fact and stated that upgrade count is Very High , not a possibility and not even High but Very High

We have Anti Porters (TonyHK) going around giving reds to all, especially other EB3 with whom he lost arguments about porting. What is surprising is that reds were given to even EB2 who congratulated. Sad !!!

Grow up Anti Porters !!

Why are you and "spicy_guy" unneccessarily taking an indirect dig at Eb2 and referring back to the porting/anti-porting debate which caused enougth divisiveness here already? i thought we were beyond that. Completely unneeded.

Now THAT was Spicy Funny :D:D:D and to boot a fact too !!!

Nobody lost or won any arguments. we just abused and mocked each other and made complete fool of ourselves without focussing on IV's real agenda. Its dangerous that some members here seem to want to harm IV efforts by claiming to represent a particular group of applicants but actually are trying to fuel unneccessary arguments that is making the entire community look bad.
It will be nice if our members stop spending their entire day on this forum fighting anonymously and learn from the 150 folks who attended meetings on capitol hill on behalf of all of us to get real relief from the backlogs (i was priveleged to be one of those advocacy participants). And to think we asked staffers to come and visit this site only to see posts like the one below?
Bringing each other down will only cause ALL of us to go down fast.

The image shows I-485 inventory numbers for EB3 india. Can anybody tell me why the inventory report says there are 28812 as of 10/1/2010 and 29936 as of 01/05/2011?

Also the difference between numbers from 8/28/2009 and 1/5/2011 is 2357. Does this mean that EB3 India has got only 2357 visas in the past 19 months?

(Note: The numbers I quoted above are the approximate number of EB3 applications before my priority date Sep,2004)
