As we finalize the immigration rules, it is crucial for us to get a clear picture of the perception of the Indian government, students in India and others said the FCO official. We believe that the nature of talks that will be held are exceptional at this stage. It highlights the significance offered by the UK for setting right its ties with India, added the official.
The immigration plans include eliminating the existing yearly cap on the allocation of Tier-2 Visa numbers for skilled workers. It is also proposed to do away with the requirement for employers. This is for attempting to find local workers in the UK prior to overseas recruitment.
