Its difficult to find exact data on total count of H1-B visa holders in US. Outsourcing based IT firms have a big share in H1-B visa applicants.Total share % in 2013 is 33%, in 2014 its 20% and in 2015 its 21%. Interesting fact is this ,that dominance of Bachelors degree holders among H1-B visa workers suggests labour substitution rather than innovation. Median salaries for H1-B visa workers in IT companies are lower than innovation driven product companies. IT outsourcing companies do not perform well on innovation benchmarks. So H1-B visa’s are granted for 3 years and 50% population does not have masters. Currently minimum estimation is approx 200,000 employees and families are on H1-B visa. Median salary is $ 71,000/- and most of the Indian employees are not in to innovative or high-end jobs. Considering very modest number i.e -25% employees coming back in 2017 and count becomes 65,000 employees. There is big difference in work culture of India &US, so its not going to be easy for them. Top IT companies in the country are worried over the growth prospects. They have already stopped hiring fresh talent while others are giving pink slips to their employees. It must kept in mind that IT companies in India heavily depend on exports of United States and almost the entire revenue comes from there,so Indian IT companies are worried lot right now.

This is no doubt a good question… we all should be aware that the quality of work that Indians are doing in India is much more mind consuming as compare to the work in the US. Therefore all I can say is that it’s not going to be easy for them in India.

i also suggest that lottery systems must be replaced with skilled migrations based on manpower requirement.
