Current Affairs : India on Tuesday raised with the US its choice to pull back US visas from remote understudies if their colleges change to online-just classes, official sources said.
The issue was raised by Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla during an internet meeting with US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale.
The sources said the US side observed it and said they will keep the eventual benefits of the Indian understudies at the top of the priority list and would attempt to alleviate the effect of the choice.
It additionally passed on to India that itemized rules for execution of the choice are yet to come out.
In a move that will antagonistically affect a huge number of Indian understudies, the US migration authority reported that remote understudies should leave the nation or hazard extradition if their colleges change to online-just classes in this fall semester due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The US movement office said that the understudies as of now remaining in the US and selected into such projects “must withdraw the nation or take different measures, for example, moving to an organization with in-person educational cost to stay in legitimate status”.
