A question regarding travel to India via Frankfurt Germany - if you hold valid H1 b approval and plan to do the stamping in India in that case while travel to India do we need transit Visa for Frankfurt Germany ?

If your H1B is not valid then you need a transit visa. If your H1 B is already renewed and you only need H1 B visa stamp plus you are not stepping out of the airport then the transit visa should not required. It is always better to check with your travel agent or call German embassy to explain your situation so dont fall in any issues later. Here is a a  resourceful link:

 if you have to go for visa stamping in India , then you can't go through Frankfurt ... pls check the details. Better opt emirates or ethihad

You need a Schengen visa if you are going to get out in Frankfurt and have plan to go around the city. If it is a layover you dont need any visa for germany.
