This major decision was taken at a time when, some of the employees whose visas expired were stranded in the United States amid the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.

According to a Money Control report, in a LinkedIn post, Samir Gosavi, its Associate Vice President – Retail, CPG and Logistics, said, “Infosys' chartered flight took off from San Francisco (SFO) last night, bringing home hundreds of employees and their families to Bengaluru.”

Meanwhile, an employee took to social media and commented on the LinkedIn post saying that the order came after employees requested the company to bring them back for various reasons. He said: “Infosys heeded to employees’ requests and arranged for the chartered flight to help them as they were struggling to get tickets via the VandeBharat mission. Also, only people with critical and valid reasons are allowed to take these flights. Still there were hundreds of employees who want to return back, but could not due to the criteria set for returning."

This move comes at a time when hundreds of techies are stranded in the US after the international flights were cancelled. However, Money Control reports that Infosys’ move is to help some of these employees, especially those who need to travel back home for personal reasons, return. 

Also, these employees include those who are on valid visas and are on billable projects. Looking into the revenge part, the US accounts for about 60 percent of it from the company. 

Infosys has also brought down the usage of H-1B visa by 60 percent, past few years.
