Govt conveys its concern to US on visa
“We have conveyed our concern with the highest level in the US administration,” the minister told reporters here adding that “Indian IT companies are giving good value addition to US companies”.
Last week, the US government said that it will temporarily suspend premium processing of HI-B visas from April 1, eliminating the option of shorter waiting period of the programme that helps highly skilled foreigners work at American firms.
Since HI-B visas are highly used by Indian IT companies, the decision of the government has directly hit domestic firms.
