Why did you goto US, What did you do when you were in US, Why did you come back ? These would help people give better suggestions.

what i don't understand is what do you mean by HR's doubting you ? What do they doubt about ?
You have a degree and you need a job. Whats there to doubt ? If you perform well they would take you...

I have a discussion with lots of consultants and all of them are asking lots of question regarding this.Now I have around 1 yr carrier gap.In two interviews I have cleared technical round and they told me HR ll get back to me.After that no HR response.Yesterday one of the consultants told me you are married with 1 yr carrier gap may be client ll not hire you so i ll not process your profile. IS there any way so that I can hide this gap?

See every action has its consequences, and you are having a tough time because of your own actions, mainly because of the decisions you took about not working for a year. Having said that, is the situation as bad as it looks ? Absolutely not . If you are confident in your technical skills, then this gap of yours should not matter. There are so many companies with so many constraints and needs of their own, that some may reject you but some may easily take you without caring about the gap. So the most important thing is to have patience and keep looking. Just keep looking. I have had a friend in almost similar situation with one year gap and he is working in a big MNC now with a huge salary. I myself have been in situation in which one company in an interview in the morning told me that I should improve my coding skills and then in afternoon in interview with another company I got an offer which was double my current salary.

So its all a matter of time. Do not try to hide your gap with false documents as now a days companies do strict BC checks. Its much safer to enter a company which takes you after knowing this rather than not knowing and finding out later and the firing you !

Another question,If I hide that I went on USA on H4 and manage to show that this carrier gap happen due to others reason,is it possible? My H4 will expired on June 2011. So later any how can my employer trace that I was ever in USA from my fingerprint?

There is some good advice. You should not even think about dishonestly hiding the type of visa you had for the USA.

After all you don't want a job by being a crook. Just earn it and feel satisfied. The best thing you can do is prepare for interviews.
Target to answer all questions correctly and your gap will be gone.

1) go to naukri.com, monsterindia.com and timesjobs.com
2) Search for jobs daily.
3) If you see a job matching your profile, call the number given in contact info of the job. They become more interested because you are interested. Tried and tested by me.
4) Learn from each interview.
5) Study Core Java, Servlets, JSP, Struts, Spring IoC, SQL and if possible Basic EJB 3.0, Hibernate
