    In company A I got H1B petition from last year quota but never traveled to US or stamped on passport. Now I am joining company B, would it be possible to transfer the same from company A to company B.

    You can't "transfer" it, but your new petition will not be counted against the cap and you will get a full six years eligibility.

    Thanks for the quick reply. So I have to file once again new H1B application from company B but no cap. If so then my new H1B application falls under quota or exempted from quota?

    At a minimum, you need the file number. Without it, you are subject to the cap.
