If you take last 90 days data of 190 visa their claim of 75% will fall flat. Infact i dont think they even touched 20%.Well if you read carefully, they endeavor to complete processing within 90 days but no hard and fast rule. I guess their target is to process 75% of applications within 90 days.
I have a feeling the speed of grants depends on which team is allocated to process your visa.. Initially I believed that they were focussing on Onshore applicants and applicants with exceptional circumstances. But that I ruled out when few Offshore applicants from March were granted the visa when Jan and Feb still awaits their golden email and in some cases even a CO allocation.If you take last 90 days data of 190 visa their claim of 75% will fall flat.

i lodged 190 application on 18 Feb and the status is "assessment in progress" since then (date also havn't changed)Has all your lasted updated date changed post you lodged your visa?? Also how many of your status still remains "assessment in progress"
My IMMI status changed from 'processing' to 'application received' a week or two ago, and after mailing my VPO to ask why, I got this response this morning:
"This means the application is ready for decision however as outlined in the email below, the Department has reached the maximum number of visas granted in the 190 visa category for this Programme Year. Visas will re-commence to decision 1 July 2015."
So at least there's no more guessing involved. 1 July it is.
