staying in india for the last 7 years. now i intend to visit usa to attend marriage. How can I apply for waiver off while living in india
You have to look into the outcome of the removal proceeding. Did they order removal in abstencia, without you being present? Or,did you accept voluntary departure? Also, the amount of time that you overstayed is relevant given that this would be the basis for the 3 or 10 year bar.
I suggest that you consult with an attorney for a response more tailored to your set of facts. More information is needed.
I agree with Ms. Morfa. You don't provide quite enough information. You will probably need a =b "unlawful presence" waiver filed by a spouse or parent. Hire a lawyer to investigate your case - he/she can do it remotely. First step will be to file a FOIA request to get your old papers so that the lawyer fully understands your old case.
