Only 227 cases of priority date of 2008 are pending for Indian EB2.
So, there are very good chances that Green card priority date will finish 2008 numbers in new season assuming no more EB3 to EB2 conversion have happened.
On the other hand, that Indian EB2 green card priority date queue might just touch the first couple of months in the new Green Card 2018-2019 season, as it did briefly in July 2018.
