50% of US L1 Permit Petitions Rejected, Claims Indian Company

Online Payment

In a somewhat major development, a well-known Indian outsourcing group has alleged that as much as half of the submissions it presents for the US Permits are being rejected by the USCIS. Consequently, Tata Consulting--the outsourcing company in question--is hiring several more employees from Canada and the US.

Talking about the development, the group’s concerned global head informed the media that the rate of denial for permit submissions made by Tata headed north, from close-to 30% to 50% in 2012 from 2011 even while it has continued to remain at the given level since then. It denotes that Tata has begun to recruit more workforces in America.

Further--showing an increase from 450 per quarter during 2012-13--the group is employing 600 workers of the North American origins per quarter in the 2013-14 financial year. The corporation is also making visits to the many universities of the US to draft graduates.


In point of fact, the same is allegedly cheaper for Tata, as compared to hiring Indian workers.

For those who came in late, the L-1 Permits are intra-firm transfer permits. Global business can move trained employees from outside America to their US bureaus even as two kinds of L-1 Permits are up for grabs, namely, the L-1A for executives and decision-makers, and the L-1B Permits for the workers with expert knowledge.

Several firms have reportedly been protesting that it has become tougher to obtain the L-1B Permits since 2012. During the month of October 2012, as many as 50 top American software groups, comprising Oracle & Microsoft, sent a letter to the current President protesting that Immigration US had made it much more difficult to gain the L-1B Permits.
