The federal government is paying for a new system of paying expats and other expats their salaries.
The plan, to be implemented by the end of the year, will allow expats to get a fixed monthly amount, as opposed to the monthly payments made by the Indian government.
Currently, expats pay the Indian Government a fixed rate for their wages, as per the Employment Equity Act.
But the new plan, expected to cost about $100 million, will help expats get a much more reliable salary.
Under the plan, expatriats who have jobs in India would be able to apply for a tax-free residency visa, which would allow them to work in India and claim their monthly wages.
In the event they receive a residency visa from the Indian consulate, they would be entitled to their monthly wage.
India’s expats, who make up about 7.5% of the population, earn $15,000 a month.
According to the National Sample Survey Organisation, Indian expats are among the fastest-growing immigrant groups in the country, and account for more than a quarter of all Indian-born foreigners in the United States.
Indian expats made up 7.7% of all permanent resident workers in the U.S. in 2020, up from 6.8% in 2000.
They now account for a significant share of the U-2 visa program, a program that gives people from developing countries a way to enter the United State for permanent residence and work.
Critics of the program argue that it discriminates against expats.
Immigrants from India are eligible for the program because they can be brought to the U, rather than the other way around.
They have a shorter residency requirement, which is shorter than the requirement for immigrants from countries with high unemployment rates, like Pakistan and Bangladesh, and less restrictive than that of immigrants from wealthier nations.
The government also gives expats a preference in hiring decisions.
Despite the government’s efforts to make Indians feel more American, Indian-American leaders have said they have experienced racism from expats in their home countries.
