your passport should be valid on your entry in USA . if your passport is expiring during your stay you have to get it renewed from the indian embassy . visitors travelling to USA are reuired to have passports vali d   for period of 6 months beyond period of their intended stay in USA .
 in you case since your passport is expiring in one year time better get your passport renewed before you travel  as US authorities may give I 94 only till your passport validity although your HIB visa is for 3 years .
