The trend is clear. Indian It companies are hit directly as their H1B visa extensions are getting refused and also they are receiving far less new H1B approvals.

The tech giants of India such as TCS, Infosys, Wipro, Cognizant, Tech Mahindra's US unit and HCL Technologies together accounted for 67% of the rejections among top 30 companies in 2018. They also saw huge number of H1B visa extension requests.

Amazingly Amazon alone bagged 2,399 H1B visas. Together the top six tech giants of India bagged only 2145 visas in 2018.

As US economy faces some difficulties in the later part of 2019 and 2020, experts predict these numbers will be nuch lower in coming yeras.
