Hi Ramadhas,

1. Currently, there are no restrictions on EB1A for India, source:
https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/law-and-policy/bulletin/2017/visa-bulletin-for-may-2017.html

2. The figures you provided are not enough to say whether you qualify for EB1A or not (even though, there is a probability that you do, taken you published 40 papers). It matters if you are the first author in those papers, where they were published (if impact factors of those journals are high for the field) and how many times they were cited (with respect to the average citation level in your field). These facts will help you to figure out if you satisfy the EB1 criteria (link below) and establish the national/international acclaim.

The total citation is ~3000 nos. But impact factor of the papers mostly of 1 and but some are in reputed international conferences, a few hosted in USA itself.
Book published is also from USA.

In that case, what is rhe possibility for EB1

Thanks..

I think it should be doable to prepare a successful EB1A case with these credentials and materials, you can obtain more information in the DIY packets from this website (see the link below). Please also keep in mind that the impact factor of the journals and the number of citations (also excluding self-citations) has an importance when compared with the typical numbers in the field, since different fields have different specifics. It is also important to present those materials in a way that will satisfy the USCIS criteria – certain points of your story (petition) can be confirmed by the reference letters.
