This year no consultants are sponsoring candidates for H1B visa due to the strong anti-outsourcing sentiments in US coupled
with recession effects (still the recession has not ended completely and many are jobless)
If you are currently in India, i would strongly advise you to stay here (There are currently many opportunities here
as of now & once the situation improves, then you can go ahead with your plan.
Last year i received couple of requests for H1B from consultants. But this year not even a single one.
