Hi Anil,
I see in this site “https://myimmitracker.com/en/au/trackers/sc189-visa-tracker-2019-2020” that many people of ANZSCO code 261313 “Software Engineer” got the invite in feb 2020 even though they submitted their application in Oct 2019 or Aug 2019. Please let me know your viewpoint on this. I have submitted application in july 2019 but still waiting. I guess now PR processing time is decreased.
I see this message in the immi account.

Even though it tells that i don’t need to do anything, but i want to be assured that i have provided all the detail. Therefore, please let me know if i have to take any action on this.

Thank you in advance.
