Disclosure reports filed by lobbyist firms with the Senate and the House of Representatives, just four Indian entities — Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), Nasscom, Sun Pharma and Orchid Chemicals — have together paid close to $275,000 during the first three months of 2009. RIL  paid $190,000 to Barbour Griffith & Rogers (BGR) Holding, a high-profile lobbyist group that has many Fortune 500 firms and foreign governments as its clients, for providing “strategic counsel on issues related to trade.”

The lobbying efforts range from potential curbs on the H-1B visa and immigration to Food and drug administration (FDA) policies.
