H1b cap almost there

According to the new data published on the USCIS Website , it has received 62,800 cap eligible petition as of 21 Jan 2011, as against the annual quota of 65,000 in the regular category. In the 20,000 cap exempt advanced degree quota, USCIS had already received 20,000 petitions, couple of weeks back.

Given that there are only 2,200 applications to go, the cap might be reached this month.

Fiscal Year 2011, started on Oct 1, 2010 and will end on Sept 30, 2011. USCIS started accepting h1b petitions for this year from April 1, 2010.

My friend Raghu, has a very neat table of how the number has progressed from April 1, 2010 in Happy Schools Blog -- h1b visa 2011
