We are so screwed !!!

For India, EB2 is reduced to more than 700% compared to 2003; EB3 is reduced to more than 800% compared to 2004. The retrogression situation would deteriorate with each year.

We are screwed indeed.

In Murthy's website they mentioned that EB3-India may retrogress further. I think it is cluster-mess and no one knows how the dates would move. Hopefully clouds would clear by the end of the year. By the time BEC should be done with all the labor certifications. So, the State department can predict more precisely how the dates would move in future.

IT's ALL OVER.

Even if the quota goes up 10 times (which will never happen of course....) still India's priority Date will NOT move forward.

Time to focus on the World Cup

Something is not right with the data you quoted.

On the same page(state dept web site), if you go down a bit see data from section V. That should give data on "Adjustment of Status" aka I-485. Consular Processing data is on differend document.

Has anyone any idea why FY 2006 doesn't add up?

FY 2005: 0 + 15,422 + 47,160 = 62,582 OK
FY 2006: 6,670 + 14,672 + 10,688 = 32,030 vs. 41,254??

If their arithmetic is that bad that they can't even add up three numbers, what else could be wrong??

Does number of Adjustment of status matter for us?

I think we are more conserned about how many new visa's are issued in each category in a fiscal year.
