India will discuss the recent US anti-outsourcing moves with President Barack Obama in his visit to the country on November 5. This is according to India’s External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna.
"There are some serious reservations being expressed about India's IT industry about outsourcing and the tightening of visa rules. These are the kind of issues that will be discussed," Krishna said. He added that there may be outsourcing issues between the two countries, but these will not affect their strong relationship.
A US bill was passed a few months ago, stating that visa fees for IT workers coming to the US will increase. This will have an impact on the outsourcing industry specifically those Indian workers who are transferred to the US. Meanwhile, Ohio Governor Ted Strickland issued an executive order that bans the transfer of government IT and back office projects offshore.
