Infy, Wipro among top H-1B visa consumers

The Top 10 companies benefitting from H-1B visas are offshore outsourcers, a US publication reported on Tuesday, prompting an eminent American engineering organisation to seek a review of the ongoing immigration reforms.

"The data shows: Top H-1B users are offshore outsourcers," and Computerworld found that, "based on the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) data analysed, the major beneficiaries of the proposed increase in the cap would be pure offshore outsourcing firms".

Among the top companies to have received the H-1B visas in 2012 visas are Cognizant (9,281 H-1B visas), Tata (7,469), Infosys (5,600), Wipro (4,304), Accenture (4,037), HCL America (2,070), Mahindra Group (1,963), IBM (1,846), Larsen and Tourbo (1,832), Deloitte (1,668), Microsoft (1497), Patni Americas (1,260) and Syntel (1,161), the report said.
