 Significant growth in H1B visa  recovery
Bangalore: The number of H1 visas issued in the year to June 25, 2010 stood at 55,477, as compared to 55,050 in the same period for the previous year. Likewise, there has been an increase in L visas too, from 31,314 to 35,504 in the same period, reports Ishani Duttagupta from The Economic Times.

According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the quota for H1B visas for 2011 is anticipated to get consumed by August 2010 and the PhD and graduate students H1B quota by the end of July 2010.
Minister, Counselor for Consular Affair at U.S. Embassy, James W. Herman said, "We expect the rise to continue in the remaining months of this financial year. There was a bottoming out last year because of the economic downturn. But now there's an upswing,"

The H1B Cap quota's permanence for eight months in the financial year 2011 signifies the economic downfall. India companies like TCS, Infosys and Satyam who were users of the U.S. work permit visa were removed from the list.

The work permit visa's 30 percent increase in China is due to the fact that, "The higher growth in China than India is probably because we issue shorter duration visas in China," adds Herman.

In order to restrict the cases of visa forgery, the U.S. department of homeland security included more people across India with honed skills in complex law enforcement procedure.
