H1B Clock Reset

I have spent 3.6 years in USA on my L1B visa, during this time I have applied for a H1B visa.

My H1B visa got approved after I returned back to India and I got my visa stamped in India

The H1B visa is valid for 2.6 Years only as I completed 3.6 years on L1B.

I'm planning to travel to USA after 366 days continuous stay in India, does it reset my H1B Clock for 6 Years?  

 

Can someone please suggest me on this?

 

Thanks

The clock will reset only if a cap subject H1B petition was filed after 365 days stay outside US.

This has been explained lots of times here.

Your time does not reset.

The time would only reset if you have been out of the US for at least a year and THEN a new H1 under the quota would be filed.

If you reuse the existing H1, the time does not reset.
