India recently filed a complaint in the World Trade Organisation (WTO) against the US’ move to impose high fees on temporary working visas, like L-1 and H-1B.India has strongly criticised the US, saying that the move would make Indian IT companies less competitive in the American market, as they would be forced to hire local workers. New Delhi argued that it would ultimately increase the Indian companies’ overall cost of operations.
In 2010, India had opposed the US’ move to hike professional visa fees.
