BENGALURU: Staging an unfortunate situation for foreign immigrants (including Indians), the UK is now planning to intensify the existing migration rules. Visualizing the future scenario from a business standpoint, the process will initialize a rigorous examination of the migration sources and impose restrictions accordingly. Amber Rudd, Home Secretary of the UK proclaimed the initialization of a new consultation on reinforcing the immigration policy. This will also have an impact on Indian students planning to study in the UK.

Explaining about the new initiative, Rudd stated that, “We will be looking across work and study routes. This will include examining whether we should tighten the test companies have to take before recruiting from abroad."

British enterprises will be expected to obey the new standards implemented even if they need experts from non-EU countries including India. As mentioned by Rudd, the tests expected to be conducted by the companies aims to increase job opportunities for British nationals. The tough immigration system will directly influence enterprises to effectively train and employ British workers.

According to the new amendment, banks will be instructed to conduct regular migration checks to stop offering banking services to illegal migrants. The checks will also be made mandatory for people seeking permit to drive a taxi. Furthermore, landowners will land in jail if they lease their property to unauthorized immigrants.

Considering student immigration rules, Rudd stated that the new standards will be tailored according to the quality of the course and institution. Furthermore, it will only be implemented after consulting with the colleges and organizations. "This isn't about pulling up the drawbridge. It's about making sure students that come here, come to study,” she said.
