Trump’s administration has made H1B visa approval a tad bit tougher. This is likely to have some kind of impact on IT stocks. In an interview with CNBC-TV18, Sandip Agarwal of Edelweiss Financial Services and Apurva Prasad of HDFC Securities discussed what is going on in the IT index and will it materially impact IT companies.

I think there is no impact because about 2-3 percent people in my view goes through this, this is just another rhetoric, Agarwal said.

Firstly, I think it will be a relatively small number. Secondly, the dependence on H1B is also reducing, I don’t think it is something which should be a concern, said Prasad.
