The recent change in UK visa rules announced today which created a panic among Indian IT professionals might not have a significant impact, according to experts in the industry.
The UK may not be a sizeable market for India compared to the US but what this statement from the UK indicates is not very `inviting’ for the Indian IT industry, said Sanchit Vir Gogia Chief Analyst & CEO of Greyhound Research, an independent IT and telecom research and advisory firm. He said that the change in rules indicates a `sense of protectionism’ on the part of the UK government. “The salaries mentioned are not prohibitive by the Indian IT standards and so that will not be an issue,” said Gogia.
