As per National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom), which is trade association of Indian Information Technology (IT) and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry, a recent move by the United States administration, to allegedly safeguard the US employees from scam will probably lead to augmented misunderstanding and examination of the different Indian technology services organizations.
Recently, Immigration US, reportedly, formalized a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the concerned department, to increase their association to better spot and remove scam, exploitation, and discrimination by recruiters/firms ushering-in visa workers from abroad to the nation. As component of the arrangement, the US organizations will share additional details with each other, to assist detect the various cases of scam in the country.
As per the information that we have, it also comprises dedicated tip lines for recording H-1B and H-2B Visa scam, and exploitation. It denotes that the H-1B Visa which is extensively employed by the technology experts from India, to do a job at the various client sites in the US will be subjected to higher examination.
The H-1B Visa has been the chosen visa for the different Indian IT groups, which has assisted them to cut costs and steal a march over the various multi-national organizations, via sending its skilled engineers to the US.
But, the IT services organizations have often been, reportedly, blamed for exploiting the lottery-based arrangement, under which 65,000 Visas under the general class and an additional 20,000 for those having a US Master’s degree from a recognized establishment are up-for-grabs.
Even though the Indian IT groups are reportedly now hiring more in the US market they have found out they can’t depend exclusively on the H-1B Visas for the movement of skilled workers any more.
