B1 visa does not allow the person to work and earn revenue so you cannot come here on b1 for consulting. You could for a product firm or some other business where you are not billing your customers.
You are very correct. But I have been working for a large company where this was happening and it still happens. This is how it works. The foreign consultants are here on business visit. They are paid a per diem allowance and booked into a extended stay suite. Just visit Milpitas and you will find that 9 out of 10 such places are always occupied by folks from HP, HCL, Infosys, Wipro, Mahindra Satyam.

So the per diem allowance is in addition to the salary they get in India. This is the loophole they use.
