indo us totalisation agreement lack of progress
Indo-US Totalisation agreement – lack of progress
  • US has signed more than 20 Totalisation agreements all with developed nations
  • Systems in the developing world with very large population have to address needs of various strata's of society, hence - multiple layers / frameworks
  • Mismatch between US visa regime and US social security
  • Lack of progress on this a concern for the Indian Industry
  • Estimates suggest Indian workers contribute more than $1B each year without receiving any benefits
  • Unfair treatment handed to some of the best minds who are contribute towards US companies and economies
  • Instead of looking at coverage of total population of India, US system should look at workers in the organized sector who are covered under mandatory framework similar to US system

India proposes:

Till the time US system can accommodate country such as India for a comprehensive treaty. A short term arrangement between India and US Government that allows either exemption or refund of the contribution made by workers in their respective countries on reciprocity basis between both countries
