It's strange that I received an RFE earlier than everyone else filed in same dates.

They picked your case on priority, possibly keeping in view that availability of visas for the nationals of your country is current. That way they ensure sufficient number of applicants for 485 from your country.

Cases of Indians can wait as it makes no difference for them.

I am not sure if it's anything to do with nationality. I140 can be very crucial for indians too, in case if you are running out of 6th years and about to file an h1b extension. In case you have an I140 approved and your numbers not current, you can extend your h1b for 3 years.

I read somewhere on trackitt forums that USCIS handling I140 cases little faster for those about to be running out 6th years, which fits to my case.

Also I think that if there is something important component missing from your application package, USCIS tends to send RFEs earlier. Will see when I receive the RFEs.
