221(g) "Administrative Processing" could be issued for a variety of reasons ranging anywhere from a simple internal check on your or your H1B spouse's case, to security checks or even an investigation. If the 221(g) sheet does not request specific information, then most likely the case is currently undergoing some form of security check. These are fairly common, but unfortunately there is no standard processing time and the wait can range from a few days to several months (even years in some rare cases).

The MurthyBulletin has published several articles about delays at the consulates and some of the common problems visa applicants have experienced recently, especially for H-4 applicants in India. (http://www.murthy.com/news/n_h14ind.html)

You may want to contact an experienced immigration attorney to try to resolve your case with the consulate.

2. Called Border & Customs US Homeland security, checked whether there will be any problem in POE, Lady informed me there wont be issues issues...lady also informed only I 94 decides how long person suppose to stay in US not US visa it allows only to enter

3. Called Chennai Consulate, they told its mistake it needs to be changed and said we might again put in administration processing which will take 3 months; but she told its my wish to travel
