No plans to place caps on H-1B work visas over data storage rules, clarifies US

NEW DELHI: The United States has clarified that it has no plans to place caps on H-1B work visas for nations that force foreign companies to store data locally.

''This review is not targeted at a specific country,'' the US Government said in a statement, according to ANI.

Allaying fears that the proposed caps on H-1B work visas will affect the Indian skilled workers most, the US Government statement said, ''It is completely separate from our ongoing discussions with India about the importance of ensuring the free flow of data across borders.''

The clarification from the US government comes in the wake of media reports claiming the Donald Trump Administration is considering to put caps on H-1B work visas for nations that force foreign companies to store data locally.

This had widened the ongoing row between the two countries over tariffs and trade.
