November 2008 Visa Bulletin EB2, EB3 dates advanced by just two months

Not a great news again. The November 2008 visa bulletin is released by Mumbai consulate. Dates have advanced only by couple of months. As per Mumbai consulate web page for EB2 dates are 1 June 2003 where as for EB3 it is 1 October 2001. In October visa bulletin EB2 dates are retrogressed to 1 April 2003 where as for EB3 it is 1 July 2001.

Here is Mumbai consulate’s November 2008 visa bulletin dates:

Predictions were that EB2 and EB3 dates will advance significantly as the October month gives some idea to USCIS where they stand on visa numbers. Looks like USCIS is still unclear of visa number predictions for November 2008 as they advanced to 2 months.

To confirm visa bulletin dates for November 2008, keep checking USCIS state visa bulletin –

I feel in November 2008 USCIS will get good idea of visa number predictions and so they can advance dates significantly for December 2008What do you think will happen to December 2008 visa bulletin dates ?
