The very phrase "increase H1-B visa for Indians" is misleading... other than singapore and chile no country has H1-Bs reserved exclusively for its nationals.

It seems like a case of bad and inaccurate reporting.Most likely the consulate spokesperson said H1-B increase is under review ... referring to CIR and a lot of bills currently in limbo.The indian media ran with it and published a story based on their interpretation without bothering to independently research the facts.

this is inaccurate reporting and we need to send the facts and draw attention to our issue.

Writing to PTI about the Green card issues and asking them to cover this story will help. Pls. on your end, do write to PTI mentioning their story and asking for coverage. do mention name of Immigrationvoice and site so that they can come to the site and get more information.

2 PTI emails are on

pls also write to Hindustan times so that they can cover our issue. when several people will write, editors will surely cover our issue.

Thats one of those things upto USCIS "discretion". During years when the quota was filled up quickly USCIS tends to let them out in the general quota. They did that last year.
