    I got my H1B extn approval notice today. My last name is misspelled in that.

    Will it be a issue when I go for visa stamping in India?

    If so, How do I fix this?

    If your name was spelled correctly on the I-129, then you can ask the CIS to issue a corrected I-797. If not, then you should file an amendment to get it fixed.
