H1B visa issue no longer a showstopper : Nasscom

KOLKATA: IT industry body Nasscom on Friday dispelled fears about the possible damaging prospects of the new U.S. immigration Bill which proposes to restrict issuance of H1B visas to Indian companies.

“Such visas will not be any showstopper in this era of technology,” Chairman of Nasscom CP Gurnani said. He said in this age of technology, companies would use the tool to get products and services delivered. “The companies and the U.S. Senate can be at odds with each other.

The U.S. corporations realise that 70 per cent of their work was being outsourced from outside,” he said on the sidelines of Nasscom Product Conclave. On top of that, visa costs were going up, Mr. Gurnani said. He said Nasscom would make an appeal to the U.S. administration.
