New Delhi, Sep 4: Ahead of Obama's visit in Nov 2010, India hopes that the issue of US visa fee hike, which is likely to make Indian IT companies less competitive in the American market  would be resolved amicably.

"I think everybody in India and the US is looking for a reasonable way to have this matter resolved amicably," Commerce Secretary Rahul Khullar told reporters.

He said that earlier several Americans, including Deputy US Trade Representative Michael Punke and Florida Senator George Lemieux, met him and discussed the issue.

"Nobody, wishes to have this visa row fostering as a wound specifically because there is a trade policy form meeting in less than two-week time from now and then there is President Barack Obama's visit," he added.
