Indian H1-B and L1 Professionals and Effect of the Latest Hike
As per earlier prediction on the rise in fee for H1-B and L1 visas which was proposed by Trump Government, is likely to commence from the day 1 of Trump Government take over. This is going to affect Indian companies as the fee structure has been hiked. H-1B from $2000 to $6000, and L1 visas to $4500. This step has been taken to protect American jobs. In this process the eligibility criteria is also seeing some changes. 

Earlier when an applicant is a post graduation they have exemption under the H1-B process and there was less paper work involved. Now this rule has been removed, so even a post graduate will go through the same process and the minimum salary scale for the foreign worker will be $100,000 which is raise from $60000. This would bring down hiring of Indian professionals as the scale would become expensive and companies will look for local talent instead. The only option would be L1 to hire Indian professional but even this also has the salary scale restriction which will not benefit the companies.

This proposed bill also says any company with 50 employees or 50% percent of the employees are on H1-B or L1 visas, those companies will be barred from hiring. Indian has a major share in creating jobs in Information Technology which is around four hundred thousand and also a huge contributor to the taxes.  It is not only the Indian who lose out on the job but it also USA as these companies create the jobs also. It is likely to affect both the sides.
