The proposed changes in theissuing of H-1B visas, the highly sought after US work permits, will badly affect the Indian IT firms which depend heavily on these work visas.

The changes under the Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) put a curb on use of H-1B visa for those companies which have a higher ratio of work force under this category. Most of the Indian companies will fall under this classification.

The companies will also have to shell out more fee to get a H-1B visa, if the draft legislation is cleared by the Congress and is signed into a law.
