Abstract

Trump’s nationalist policies, especially the ones relating to H-1 B visas are seen to be taking a toll on India’s $150 billion information technology industry, which relies heavily on exports to the United States. Trump’s policies regarding H1 B visas could slow down and make this sector less competitive. This paper tries to study this impact in detail and also explore solutions to this problem, from the point of view, of Indian IT industries.
