Nope. No problems in filing H1B through multiple companies at the same time.

SO I did a quick count of number of votes and am happy to announce that so far my city is leading (Pune)
Chennai and Hyderabad are close behind with 4 votes each and the city that never sleeps (Mumbai) is following with 3 votes.
Please note that this is a quick count.. and may not be totally accurate.. so if you feel that there's something fishy
going on with the numbers.. by all means do the honors again.. ;-) The total votes are less than number of posts in this thread
'cause many post discuss pros and cons of different cities without giving their opinion..
Here's quick summary of the result..

Mumbai - (3) pros - truly cosmopoliton.. cons - expensive, crowded
Chennai -(4) pros - cheap.. cons - not cosmopoliton
Pune - (6) pros - good overall performance on numer of opp. weather , safty etc. cons - infrastructure is lagging behind the growth
Delhi -(2) - pros - ? cons - safty
Hydrabad - (4) pros- number of opportunities, affordable standard of living cons - ?
Gandhinagar - (2)
Cochin - (1)
Coimbtoor - (1)
Banglore - (2) This is surprising.. the silicon valey of India is second last in fact.. first post to claim Banglore is the best city is the 30th post
this thread.. Is it because of the unplanned growth , ridiculously high property prices.. ?
Chandigar - (1)
Jai pur - (1)

Cheers

Good one. i can totally relate with this.. Infact I fractured my left hand while playing kabbadi in P.T. I was trying to reach the center line and 3 defenders jumped on me ! I was the last one to get off the ground .. missed school for a day.. then all my class signed on my plaster... was wonderful..

Yes I also feel that Chennai is best city for you if you are Tamil. This is my personal opinion based on my personal experience. As far as opportunities and willingness to accept people from other states are concerned I think Pune is the best. If you only consider willingness to accept people from other states, then Mumbai rules. And Mumbai do have decent number of IT companies.. earlier IT companies in Mumbai were concentrated in Seepz.. Andheri (East). .but now they are all over the city.. New Bombay has quite a few good companies...
Weather / Safty / Number of opportunities / Cost of Living / cultural openness makes Pune the best city IMO. Agreed the infrastructure is somewhat challenged.. but thats true in most of the cities in India.

But this is a very personal question. What is best for me may not be best for you and vice versa.. :-)

Hi

My wife who is on H4 (dependent visa) visa in US, got her H1 approved recently. So she has to go outside US to get it stamped on her passport before she can start working. And since We are in California, we are thinking of going to Mexico for the stamping. I was wondering if any of the ranchers have experience in this or can give me pointers. I am going to do my research anyway but if somebody can share his/her personal experience / friends experience, it will be great.

Thanks

Rohan.

Actually, I've heard that here in California, if you can show that you were not exceding the average speed that people actually drive on that street, you can beat the speeding ticket, regardless of posted limits. The jurisdiction is required to survey streets for driving speeds periodically, and provide you with that information for your case. Or so I've heard.



Oh is it really true ? Then I would be very much interested in knowing where can I get actual "Average Speed" .. 'cause in last week a cop pulled me over for going downhill at 50 where the speed limit was 35.. and I drive on that road daily and rarely I have seen people driving below 45.. The cop was very polite though .. infact he only suggested me to attend a driving school in order to keep my insurance same.. or does he get some comminsion / driver he sends to driving school..

I have seen this photo before in some book.. don't remeber which one. was it in Sunny Days ..? Don't think so.. Anyway here is what google brought up..And yes the bowler is Lillee..

The occasion is New Zealand v Australia, 2nd Test at Eden Park, 1976/77. NZ was nine down in its second innings, the facing batsman being Peter Petherick (who couldn�t bat) partnered by Ewen Chatfield (who was worse).

You can't download trial version of IBS websphere portal. What you CAN do is download and install RAD 6.0 it comes with IBM Portal Test environment. You can develop and test your portalets on that. RAD 6.0 comes with portal test env. 5.0 then you have todownload test env. 5.1 separately and integrate it with RAD.

IBM recently release portal server 6.0 ..don't know if the 6.0 test env. is available for downlopad. If you find it, kindly post a link here.

Thanks guys for your suggestions. My wife spoke with Cathay and they said that porter can be arranged in LAX. She just need to tell the air-hostess / airline staff on arrival and they can arrange it. But unfortunately they can't arrange the porter in Mumbai. So half of the problem is solved, half still remains.. Chetan ..will PM you.
While googling for this came across this link.. may be useful for someone

My wife and two year old son are flying from Mumbai airport to Los Angeles in September. And I am little worried about how that experience is going to be for my wife and son.. Mainly because my wife will have to control my son..( who is hyperactive !) and also manages 6 bags in total.. 5 check in and 1 carry on.. I tried searching for airport porters / skycaps in Mumbai and Los Angeles airport but didn�t find with anything useful.. So fellow ranchers.. do you have any experience with this.. do you know how we can arrange for porters / assistance for managing luggage ? Ideally I would like someone to meet my wife at Mumbai airport.. assist her with the check.in.. and at the arrival gate in Los Angeles to carry the luggage to the parking lot.. Can this be done.. ?

Thanks

I am not a lawyer so I can not tell you authoratively that these are the answers to your queries, for that please contact
a competent immigration lawyer but what I can tell you is my (and also few of my friend's ) personal experience. I also was in same situation as you are now. Company Y transferred my H1 while I was working for company X in US. Then once the visa was transferred, I moved to company Y but didn't go back to India just to get my visa stamped. After about six months working for company Y, I went to India on vacation and got the visa stamped. I took Notice of action and pay stubs from the new company with me to the consulate. So I guess you don't have to go to India or any other country to get your new visa stamped in your passport. I think the reasoning is, you already have a valid visa, so you can stay in the country legally and you can work legally for company Y 'cause you have a valid work permit (notice of action - I 797) from them.
About I-94 I really don't know the legality in detail but I think when you will leave the country, that time immigration office will collect your existing I94 and at the time of entering US again, Immigration officer will issue you new I94 at the port of entry. Again I am stressing that this is my limited understanding in this matter and is based on my own and few of my friends experiences.
