This is likely to force some of the major IT companies to hire locally in the US, which could result in margin pressures for these companies.

A legislation has been introduced in the US House of Representatives which among other things calls for more than doubling the minimum salary of H-1B visa holders to USD 130,000, making it difficult for firms to use the programme to replace American employees with foreign workers, including from India, PTI has reported.

Shares in TCS slumped 4.5 per cent, while Infosys was down 3 per cent and Tech Mahindra slumped 3.5 per cent. Indian IT companies use the H1B visa which is an employment-based, non-immigrant visa category for temporary workers. This enables them to send employees to work in the US.
