    India’s Infosys in US business visa probe

    “it will “co-operate fully” with a probe by US authorities into allegations it violated visa laws.” Indian software giant Infosys Technologies on Wednesday said.  The one of the leaders of India’s flagship outsourcing sector this is the Infosys,   said it received a notice late Tuesday from a Texas court requesting documents used to obtain visas for staff attending meetings and conferences in the United States.  The Infosys co-chairman S.Gopalakrishnan told AFP in the southern city of Bangalore.  “We have received the subpoena and are currently internally reviewing details relating to the matter,”  Gopalakrishnan said the company will co-operate fully.  To embroil India’s high-tech industry in the United States where anti-outsourcing anger has been stoked by high unemployment, the subpoena is the latest controversy.  Instead of the correct — and more expensive — “H-1B” work permits, the investigation is to determine whether Infosys used cheaper and easier-to-obtain B-1 visas for business visits,  The US State Department says “visitors require a B-1 visa if they are traveling for a “scientific, education, professional or business convention, or conference… to settle an estate, or negotiate a contract”.”   An H-1B visa allows US-based firms to temporarily employ foreign workers in certain specified occupations, in the contrast,  “The United States issues 65,000 H-1B visas a year, the department”  said on its website.  It issued after an employee filed a lawsuit in the United States alleging that the Nasdaq-listed Infosys was “improperly” using B1 visas, the subpoena. Including Infosys Technologies, at the Bombay Stock Exchange in Wednesday trade, the investors sold software shares, after news of the court notice.  The Infosys was down nearly two percent at 2,796 rupees $61.60.  It has become the world’s back office where Western firms set up call centres, number-crunching and software development outlets to cut costs.  The India, which last year held at least 50 percent of the global outsourcing market. to the United States to work at their clients’ locations as on-site technicians and engineers in what critics charge is a violation of the “spirit” of US immigration law the Indian IT firms also fly thousands of employees each year.  The sector has created thousands of jobs in the United States and is not taking them away,  India’s outsourcing industry has insisted that. Ohio state banned outsourcing of government information technology and back-office projects to locations such as India to combat unemployment, but it is last year, the United States employed by firms whose workforces are largely foreign, the US government also sharply hiked fees for non-immigrant “H-1B” work permits, in the a move hitting Indian information technology workers entering.  It said that while the Infosys may be the one of the largest visa abuser, they can hardly the only one company that misusing the visas.  Through the elaborate of the schemes. The VIsa Fraud including the misrepresentation of the reasons for the travelling was the federal felony with the ten years in the prison of the first offense.. This outsourcing helps the company to ensure that it will be strong  and success in the name of the business.
