He added that he is "not a great fan of running any company based on visas".



Infosys has already faced lawsuits on three separate occasions by its employees in the US alleging discrimination of US job applicants in favour of South Asians.



The first lawsuit was by one of Infosys' American employee Jack 'Jay' Palmer who claimed he was harassed after he refused requests by the company to circumvent US visa laws.



He accused Infosys of using short-term business visas instead of work visas meant for high-skilled labour.



In August last year, a US court dismissed harassment charges, ruling in favour of Infosys.



The second lawsuit was by Satya Dev Tripuraneni, a US citizen, who alleged harassment for blowing the whistle on the alleged visa and tax fraud issue.



The latest lawsuit, filed in the US District Court in Eastern Wisconsin by Brenda Koehler on August 1, 2013, charges Infosys of engaging in "systematic, company-wide discrimination against individuals based upon their national origin".
