U.S. business groups on Monday urged Vice President Joe Biden to press India's leaders this week to reverse course on a number of government policies they said unfairly harm U.S. companies that do business in the world's largest democracy.

"Unfortunately, many U.S. companies are facing serious issues doing business in India," the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers and some 40 other groups said in a letter to Biden, who will meet with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi on Tuesday.

"These issues are systemic, going far beyond any one industry sector," the business groups said.
