ECR status on my passport

Hi, I got my passport issued in 2010 with ECR stamp on it and I am travelling now to USA on F1 visa. Will it affect my chances or do I need to get ECNR stamp compulsorily? Should I go for reissue of passport? Please help.

For USA, ECNR is not required so you can travel even on a ECR status passport.
