The United States stated that India has adhered to the increased visa fees for H1B and L1 Visa. The visa fee hike is to impact the Indian IT firms economcially, this issue was brought to the notice by the Indian finance minister Arun jaitley during the joint meeting. 

The Indian finance minister had told that there are two matters, one is the present one , visa fee issue and the other one is the old matter of totalization charges for the IT experts. The US reply is that we have law that so mentions it.

He also said that unless the law is modified it remains the same.

The finance minister was replying to a query on kind of reply he got from the US, when he raised the matter during meeting previously this week.

Noticing that similar fee for visa is affecting only firms from India, the Finance Minister has mentioned it as biased practice.

Previous year, the United States Congress imposed a special fee of $4500 on H-1B and L-1 visas favorable among IT firms of India for funding a act of health care and system of biometric tracking.
