Notes:
I am a postdoc and I was in the USA for around 21 months on a J1 visa. I took J1 waiver and changed status within USA. Came to India for H1(B) stamping with wife for H4. Attended interview on 4th December at Kolkata. The VO asked basic questions such as job location, client, employer, salary, job responsibility, city in USA we live, if we have any kid etc. VO said everything is good, but we need to do administrative processing. VO returned passports and issued a 221(G) green slip, asking to submit research description, CV, supervisor's+employer's letters. Documents submitted on the next day (5th December) by email. On the second counter, the officer said it can take 4 to 6 weeks or more. This is my 3rd time 221(G) vet, first on B1/B2 and second on J1 visa. Both previous 221(G) cases got cleared within ~30 days. Passport submission email from consulate: 3 Jan Passport submitted: 6 Jan Case updated: 6, 7, 8 Jan Case updated: 9 Jan: Issued Passport picked up with stamp: 10 Jan

But he didnt listen. i sent email with documents on same day i.e. 19th dec. Status still shows 19th dec date. no updates
