Immigrants from India are now a decisive lobby group in Australia

In March 2017, the annual migration report of the Australian Bureau of Statistics had revealed that the fastest growing migrant group in Australia was that of immigrants from India. The share of Indian immigrants in Australian population rose to 1.9% in 2016 from the 0.8% in 2006.

The increase in the numbers of immigrants from India has resulted in the increase in their ability to lobby on behalf of the immigrant community in Australia, quotes Macro Business.

In the previous month, Ministry of External Affairs in India had given a statement against the decision of the Turnbull government to introduce minor changes to the Subclass 457 visas wherein one-third of the visas are utilized by the Indians. In fact, Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi also intervened and said that the changes to the visas posed a threat to the free deal between India and Australia that is being planned in the future.

Similarly, in the updated report of the Australian Population Research Institute, the impact of the immigration on Australia’s visa system was exhaustively examined.

Out of the several findings of the report, it was also revealed that a number of professionals from India in the IT sector have been approved the Subclass 457 visas. It was also reported that IT was the largest sector within the Subclass 457 visas.

It was also revealed by the APRI that Indian IT services firms have been quite victorious in availing a vast portion of the consulting work in Australia through the 457 visas.
