New Delhi: US commerce secretary Penny Pritzker said on Tuesday she would look into India’s concerns over a hike in visa fee for professionals.

New Delhi has protested against the hike, which it says is a barrier to the movement of workers.

“It is imperative that we look into that issue," Pritzker told a news conference in New Delhi at the end of a strategic and commercial dialogue between the two countries.
