India's peak technology industry body believes a new United States immigration bill discriminates against Indian companies and creates an uneven playing field.
Mittal said the impact would hit U.S. companies so they would also be on its side. "Whether it is our customers (in the U.S.) or whether it is our own government or Nasscom, we are all ensuring that we provide these perspectives to the decision makers there," Mittal said.
Our [Ambassador of India to the US] is actively working [on this issue]. Government of India at the senior levels have written to their counterparts in U.S. I don't think any country wants discriminatory bills to come in. They do not want this to become a trade issue," he added.
The president said Indians working in the U.S. have contributed more than US$15 billion in taxes and social security in the last five years.
