A bipartisan gathering of two US legislators has presented in the House of Representatives an enactment, which if went by the Congress would keep Indian organizations from employing IT experts on H-1B and L1 work visas.

Since the income model of greater part of huge Indian IT organizations is intensely reliant on H-1B and L1 visas in the US, such a bill is prone to have a noteworthy effect, if not sound a demise ring, on their organizations.
The ‘H-1B and L-1 Visa Reform Act of 2016’ presented by ‘Democratic Congressman’ Bill Pascrell from New Jersey and ‘Republican’ Dana Rohrabacher from California would disallow organizations from enlisting H-1B workers if they utilize more than 50 individuals and more than 50 for each penny of their representatives are H-1B and L-1 visa holders.

Prior to the bill is marked into a law by US President Barack Obama, it should be passed by the Senate, wherein it has not been tabled in this way. Strikingly, the two supporters of the bill originate from the two American states which have the most extreme centralization of Indian Americans.

“America is creating numerous gifted, high-tech experts with higher level degrees and no employments. By ‘in-sourcing’ and misusing outside specialists, a few organizations are mishandling the visa programs and undermining our workforce to procure the prizes,” Congressman Pascrell said.

“Without the basic changes our bill proposes, American specialists will keep on being unreasonably dislodged and visa labourers will keep on being abused — both of which are unsatisfactory,” he said in an announcement.

Taking note of the remote outsourcing organizations are the top clients of the H-1B and L-1 visa programs, a media explanation issued by the Congressman’s office said throughout the years various concerns have been raised about how certain organizations have been utilizing these visa programs, including a 2011 report from the Government Accountability Office calling for change.

Pascrell and Rohrabacher had presented a comparable variant of this bill in 2010, which couldn’t increase enough backing in the Congress. The officials said the H-1B and L-1 Visa Reform Act of 2016 would close provisos in the H-1B and L-1 visa programs, diminish misrepresentation and misuse, give assurances to American specialists and visa holders, require more straightforwardness in the enlistment of remote labourers, and expansion punishments on the individuals who disregard the law.
