Feb 2012 Visa Bulletin was released today and the priority dates are 01 JAN 10 for EB2 India and 15 AUG 02 for EB3 India. For China, the numbers are 01 JAN 10 for EB2 and 01 DEC 04 for EB3.
EB2 India moved from 01 JAN 09 in January Visa Bulletin to 01 Jan 10 in Feb. The EB3 India has moved 7 days compared to last visa bulletin.
EB2 India movement is a good news for all the folks whose priority date is in 2009. It has moved one year, covering the whole of 2009. Given this type of movement, retrogression at some point in this fiscal year is absolutely necessary. They say this in the visa bulletin link given below and they also predict the movement for EB3,
China and India: Reports from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) indicate that the rate of new filings for adjustment of status in recent months has been extremely low. This fact has required the continued rapid forward movement of the cut-off date, in an attempt to generate demand and maximize number use under the annual limit. Once the level of new filings or USCIS processing increases significantly, it will be necessary to slow or stop the movement of the cut-off. Readers are once again advised that an eventual need to retrogress the cut-off date is also a distinct possibility.
Worldwide: up to one month
China: up to one month
India: up to two weeks "
For EB3 India, it is going to move at this pace only till there is a legislative change. The reason being there is no spill over to EB3. Hence only about 2800 green cards are given for this category every year.
