The count of Indian students arriving in the United States has been surging steadily as pointed out by enhancing visa application numbers which are being processed by the USA embassy in India, said the US envoy in a statement. According to Mumbai US Consul General, Thomas J Vajda, in the previous year the figure of visa applications were enhanced by 20%, but the count of visa requests by international students has increased to more than 20%. He further added that Indians are second largest student cohort in United States following Chinese. 

As per the new statement of Vajda, the count of Indian students studying in the United States is increasing gradually. Its standard education system and fine infrastructure are making more Indian students to flock to the USA. Every year around 100,000 Indian students prefer to undertake their higher education in top ranked universities of the country.

In the previous year, the United States has issued around 900,000 visas for Indians, out of which 300,000 were allotted in Mumbai. Thus, the count of visa allotment has risen to 20% compared to previous years. Vajda even noted that they have spent around a hundred million dollars to offer better visa facilities for Indians.
