When you came to US on J=1 did your wife too come along with you? or she stayed back in INdia. If she is planning to come now then you send all your DS-2019 including the extended one. YOu talk to your international student services at your university or wherever you are. They will generate separate J=2 document for your wife. YOu need not go to india provided if you want to spend some peaceful and enjoyable time with your parents and friends.
Good luck with everything

Thank you for the advice
she has got her documents for J2. she didnt come to USA.Initially my J1 status was only for 12 months and no funding from Instistute.She applied subsequently , but got refused on the ground that the remaining period being only 7 months.Now my J1 status got extented with funding from Institute.Since she was got refused earlier, I was wondering what is the best option available.

YOu need not worry about her J-2 visa because you have got extension for 2 years (am I right?). So I do not see any problem now provided you have necessary documents.
