The controversial H1-B visa issue got a fresh lease of life as 13 governors in the United States -- including Democrats and Republicans -- sent a letter to the Congress, exhorting it to revisit the issue since there was a "critical shortage of highly-skilled professionals in math and science to fill the current needs".

The earlier attempts of the Indian IT industry and the US Congress to push for an increase in the number of H1-B visa limit got entangled in the contentious immigration bill that finally got defeated.

Do you support this move by the US Governors? Do you think Indian would benefit should H1-B visas be increased?

Do you feel Indians working in the US can actually contribute a lot to the growth of that country?

Or are you of the opinion that the existing number of H1-B visasĀ is more than enough?
