New Delhi: Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday met Wipro chairman Azim Premji and is understood to have discussed visa problems being faced by Indian professionals in the US.
Time and again the Indian government has raised the issue of hike in visa fee by the US. It has also filed a case at WTO against the United States' decision to impose high fees on temporary working visas.
The commerce and industry ministry said in a tweet that Mr Premji and the minister discussed IT-related issues.
The Americas accounted for 53.5 per cent of the company's total IT services revenue during the first quarter of this fiscal year. Wipro is India's third largest software services firm.
The US assured the Indian government that it will look into the concerns.
However, it maintained that the decision was not targetted against Indian professionals.
