H1-B visa cap reached

There is an article by George Joseph in New York, June 03, 2006 in Rediff.com

"The H1-B visa numbers did not last even two months before the cap was reached on May 26. US Citizenship and Immigration Services announced on June 1 that it has received a sufficient number of H-1B petitions to meet the Congressionally mandated cap for Financial Year 2007, which begins in October.

This means that people who want to file regular H1-B visas will have to wait until next April, unless Congress increases the numbers in the Immigration Bill, which is currently under its consideration".
