I am Indian and have an approved EB2 I-140. If I apply for a national interest waiver (NIW), will that help me get a green card more quickly?


If an NIW I-140 is approved, the case still falls under the EB2 category. So, while the NIW category has certain benefits (e.g., self-sponsorship), it generally will not help with regard to the lengthy backlogs in the visa bulletin. (16.Jan.2020)
