Indian professionals to be hit as UK sets annual limit
Thousands of highly skilled Indian professionals will not be able to take up jobs in Britain after the David Cameron government today announced a limit of 24,100 for non-European Union professionals to be allowed until April 2011.
Once the limit of 24,100 is reached, no other Indian or other non-EU professional will be able to take up jobs in Britain.
The controversial annual limit was announced by Home Secretary Theresa May on Monday.
..... The limit is part of the coalition government’s promise to curb immigration to the levels of the 1990s: 'to tens of thousands rather than hundreds of thousands'.
..... In the meantime, an interim limit will be introduced to ensure there is no rush of applications and the number of work visas issued stays below 2009 levels, he said.
The results of the consultation on the permanent limit will pave the way for fundamental changes to the way in which workers from outside the EU will be chosen to come and work in the UK.
