It is well known that India is one of the largest beneficiaries of H-1B. Now a fresh battle is likely to take a new turn as the US has been mulling cap on H-1B. In such cases, the landing H1-B visas got tougher for IT firms. If it is implemented the data localization rules would impact US-based technology companies. On the other hand, India has been planning to impose data protection rules and the draft bill awaits cabinet nod. In the present circumstances, trade disputes have worsened between the US and India. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to India may solve the problem, it is hoped.
