India’s IT sector was growing rapidly for past years. The growth may come to an end as Donald Trump’s new H-1B visa policy may harm Indian IT sector. Skilled workforce and organizations, like TSC expanded India’s IT sector. Moreover, adopting the technique of work-distribution via subcontract played a pivotal role toward the expansion.
Indian IT sector
IT sector of the South East Asian country reaps 60 billion dollars per year from US market alone. Such inflow may come to an end because of US president Donald Trump’s anti- immigration policy. As a part of the policy of H-1B visa, if Trump administration imposes any restriction opposing the type of the visa, Indian IT experts may lose jobs. Consequently, the IT professionals are in an alarming condition. In each year India sends a large number of skilled IT experts off to USA. As a matter of an obstruction in H-1B may put India’s IT sector in an unpleasant situation.
Indian Tech companies
Topnotch organizations in India like Infosys, TATA Consultancy Service (TCS), and Wi Pro assisted many IT professionals to get jobs in USA. Eventually, The Google CEO Sundar Pichai also started his career in the same fashion. Still walking in the same road there are many Indians dream to reach success. Nonetheless, Donald Trump declared he will put Americans first in terms of IT jobs. As a matter of fact, it frustrated many Indian IT students who are currently studying IT. Moreover, mass people are upset too. Though, a large number of Indians was tremendously excited about Donald Trump’s election .
Meanwhile, members of congress already introduced 3 bills in order to reform H-1B visa. One of the proposals is regarding salary which proposes a price hike in the visa processing fees. According to the bill Indian visa processing organizations will have count more money for visa procedures. Thusly, journey to Silicon Valley will be more costly.
According to a survey by National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM), gross value of India’s outsourcing industry is 108 billion dollars. Additionally, number of people work in this sector is 4 million. However, president of NASSCOM is claiming that Trump administration’s such decision is self-destructive. NASSCOM president further commented that such restriction will create uncertainty in America’s IT sector while number of skilled employees will decrease too. He reasoned that the reason behind American people are not getting job in the sector is they are not smart enough. Eventually, United States does not have the adequate number of skilled employees for technology sector.
All in all, if Trump administration materializes the bill India will have to lose one of its big earning sources. Additionally, India may be looking forward to work in Asia-Pacific region.
