Disturbed over the likely change in visa policy by London -- which allegedly does not do any good to the IT skilled workers from India -- the concerned officers from India have issued a warning of sorts to Britain that, in the wake of the not too pleasant development, the affected Indian IT companies may have no alternatives except to shift base to certain other nations of the world.
In this connection, the involved Indian minister recently engaged the concerned British Secretary in a meeting. He (Indian minister) reportedly aired the Indian concerns over the issue saying workers from Indian firms -- who are keen to visit Britain for business meetings -- also have to face inordinately long delays in getting a Visit Permit for the overseas destination.
The other day, and in the wake of some recommendations from the involved organization of the UK, London had discussed cutting down on the number of migrant workers permitted into Britain through the Tier-II intra-company transfer (ICT) path.
Assuaging Indian concerns, the British Secretary assured that London had made up its mind that it would not make any change in the path of the ICT for the coming two years. The suggested changes had not gone down well with the Indian IT businesses and New Delhi - the reason being this would have brought about increasing the income limit to make the cut for a Tier-II intra-company transfer permit, and putting a cap on Tier-II ICT permits of Britain.
The Indian minister also added that since the closure of the path of the Tier-I post-study work permit, students from India are now exploring all available alternatives to study in certain other leading nations of the world, including Australia and Canada.
One of the facts that much appeals students from India, turning up on the British soils during the past, has been that the right to work in country, post graduation, comes their way. Afterwards, they have the chance to get back at least a section of the money they may have spent on their education at a British University even as the same, at the present, is not an easy thing to do.
