H1B Visa: India Begins Dialogue With US Lawmakers

The Indian software services companies will breathe a sigh of relief as the Indian ministries, authorities and industry lobby had a dialogue with a visiting eight-member US delegation headed by Congressman Bob GoodLatte, on the ongoing concerns of H1-B visa holders.

The US has introduced the Lofgren Bill, which proposes the minimum wages being doubled to $130,000. The current H1-B minimum wage of $60,000 was fixed in 1989.

However, most H1-B visa holders get an average of $1,00,000, according to research and advisory firm, Greyhound Research.
