India’s IT giants like Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, Wipro are likely to revamp their delivery models (with more emphasis on off-site work culture) and cut down on H1-B applications after US President Donald Trump announced his plan to temporarily halt immigration and work towards increasing employment opportunities for US locals, industry analysts say.
Analysts predict that India’s top IT services firms including TCS, Infosys may go for fewer H-1B visa filings this year and there could be an increasing trend of local hirings in the US by Desi firms.
“We have seen the trend of many Indian companies hiring locally in the US for the last few years due to tougher visa modalities, which will only increase from now onwards. On the other hand, a total closure of boundaries will be no solution as the employers are always on the lookout for those with advanced skillsets. Hence for the Indian techies to survive this tide, revamping their skills will prove extremely important,” Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst and CEO, Greyhound Research said.
