Getting an American Green Card may soon become easy for Indians staying on H1b Visa in the US if two identical legislation pushed by powerful lawmakers in the US House of Representatives and the Senate comes into effect. If passed, the legislation would end per-country Green Card limit, benefitting thousands of Indian professionals waiting to gain permanent legal residency in the country. The legislation is also backed by top Silicon Valley companies like Google and corporate bodies such as the US Chambers of Commerce.
News agency PTI reported today that if passed by the Congress and signed into law, the legislation would benefit hundreds and thousands of Indian professionals on H-1B visas whose current wait time for permanent legal residency is more than a decade.
