DALLAS, TX (TIP): A Silicon Valley based IT firm has filed a lawsuit against the United States government for denying H-1B visa to an Indian techie.
The North American IT firm, Xterra Solutions has filed a lawsuit
against the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) where it claims that the denial of visa to the
Indian techie is baseless. The employee had applied for Business System Analyst
position at the company.
The 28-year old Indian techie Praharsh Chandra Sai Venkata Anisetti was hired by Xterra Solutions for Business Systems Analyst position. The IT firm claims that visa denial is not supported by substantial evidence on record. The case of denial is contrary to established legal precedent. The lawsuit reads that case of visa denial is a clear abuse of discretion.
Xterra Solutions has filed the case in the Northern District of California US District Court. The company requests the court to revoke the USCIS order and grant H-1B visa to its Indian employee.
Anisetti is already living in the US on a valid H-4 visa, through his wife. He has earned Bachelor’s degree in Engineering and Master of Science from the University of Texas and completed his graduate studies at UT Dallas in Management Information systems. He held a valid F-1 non-immigration visa while he was studying at the Texas University.
