The reports of Indian IT industry being the largest applicant of US skilled worker visas highlights that there is inadequate supply of talent for the type of demand in the US. More than 20,000 H-1B visa petitions were received by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for the financial year 2017. The process of visa application began on 1st April. According to some reports, around 250,000 applications were received for H-1B visa. Rudraksh Group, one of the leading immigration consultancies highlights that there was a huge difference between the H-1B visas that are issued and the number that are actually required. There have been several attempts in the past to enhance the number and resolve the situation.usa-h1b-visa-consultants-hyderabad

The IT services industry has faced severe criticism for allegedly abusing the visa process as it is a huge beneficiary of the H-1B visa programmer. However, the industry denied the claims and asserted that the nature of work requires these work visas for transfer of skilled labour across borders. Rudraksh Group states that the matter of H-1B visa misuse has become one of the major concerning issues in the country with the US heading towards presidential elections this year. The company further added that considering other alternatives will prove to be the right course of action in this situation. The quota of H- 1B is very restrictive which is well evident from the huge number of applications for the quota in the supposedly most free market economy in the world  within the first few days.
