H-1B VISA May not be extended for those waiting for Green Card( permanent residency) in USA.

One of the big news I have heard this week was the changes in H-1B VISA by Trump administration which can affect as many as 500K Indians living in the USA and working in the technology sector. The H-1B VISA is the most popular way for Indian IT professional to travel the USA. In general, it is first issued for 3 years but can be extended for another 3 years. Which means an individual who goes to the USA on H-1B VISA can stay their as long as 6 years. After that, he has to come back India or go outside the USA for another 1 year before he can come back, but there is a twist.
