Q: ·You are a citizen of India. You came in USA on H1B visa in year 2000.
Your employer filed your Green Card under EB3 – NON RIR category. Down
the road your company filed the Green Card for your Pakistani colleague
in year 2005 and in year 2006 November you came to know that your
Pakistani colleague became permanent resident as his GC application
approved. Upon hearing this news you get frustrated. What do you think
why your Green card is not yet approved? What could be the reasons
behind this long delay?

A: Sorry to hear that your ancestors did not migrate to Pakistan in 1947. :)
For that mistake what your ancestors did,USCIS is making you to pay the
price for that as now you have decided to become permanent resident of
USA.

O.K. Humor asides.

First reason:

It could be discriminatory country based limit - USCIS has implemented country based quota for India, Philippines, Mexico and China and each of this country has cap 7 % of total EB based applications
(Recommended top limit is 140000 visa applications worldwide).

Second reason:

In my opinion it could be as reported by various media that during first quarter of 2001 lot of unfair/ghost/bogus filing was done by many people under EB3and EB2 categories to take the advantage of AC21 law and so USCIS tightened the screws on processing method and make it a slow bleed strategy.

Third reason:

Somehow EB3 India category has to face heaviest retrogression historically from year 2001 to 2003 end and from start of 2005 with comparison to other EB categories for labor approval as well as for visa number allotment process.

Fourth reason:

USCIS's decision to convert existing labor process administration (which was of two fold: state level approval and region level approval) into centralized administration by creating backlog centers on the name of streamlining and faster conclusions. This decision could easily introduce at least average 6 to 7 months of delay and more sluggishness.

Fifth reason:

Pakistan being a part of "Rest of the world" your colleague did not have to face severe retrogressions as rest of the world category did not face the typical severe retrogressions like what EB3 China-India-Mexico had to face and as it is there are less applicants from rest of the world with comparison to China and India for EB categories, your colleague did not have to face lot of competetion and wait within his category.
