You can use the dates based on your country of birth and not country of passport. The dates are given in ‘others’ row for people from countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

China, Mexico and Philippines have high demand just like India and hence have separate rows for dates due to heavy backlogs.

Check the USCIS Visa Bulletin for Employment Based Green Cards.

Final Action vs Date of Filing Chart

Final action chart means that a green card is available for issue. You can file your adjustment of status using form i485 in the family sponsored category if your approved I130’s priority date is older than the dates given in FA chart.

Date of filing chart simply means that USCIS is only allowing you to file form i485 to adjust your status in US. A green card visa number is NOT yet available for your case. But, you can file your application and can get the i485 EAD work permit and advance parole (AP). You will still need to wait for your date to actually get current in the Final Action chart to have your green card approved.
