Centre hopeful of resolving  H-1B visa row

 India is hopeful of finding a solution soon to the concerns of tech firms regarding a possible clampdown on work visa programmes such as H-1B by the US administration, IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

“I have also spoken to Infosys founder N R Narayanmurthy and Nasscom president R Chandrasekhar and representatives of other IT related bodies. We are closely working with the External Affairs Ministry to address the IT companies concerns”, he said.

The government has conveyed the concerns of IT sector in “right quarters” of the US administration, but local companies need to present their contribution in more cogent way, the minister said.
