H1B visa rejected, what are the options I have?

Hi All,

I filed for H1B Visa through a consultant in April 2013. My applicaiton was picked by lottery and I went for visa stamping in Singapore in Nov 2013. Initially I got 221g. After submitting few set of documents I finally got Revocation letter in Jun 2014 ( see below copy pasted). My consultant mentioned that he will get a letter from the USCIS and based on the reasons they mentioned in the letter, the consulatancy will reply to them with the details. Even after 4 months they are saying they have not yet received the letter.

At this stagem is it possible for the Consultant to move further and I get visa approval?

I am currently working for MNC, and I am trying to get the H1B from them. What are the options I have like- can they use the same petition for amendment or need to file a new petition with CAP exemption.

Please advise…
