Is India on a verge of Brain Drain again?

3 years ago

Lucknow: With the youth of the nation looking for the best when it come to getting a degree, the colleges in India fail to satisfy the needs of many Indian students. This is not someone’s personal observation; however, the data says it all. With the increase in number by more than 200 percent of those choosing a foreign university to get higher education the picture seems to be a lot worse as this seems to be a prelude of what could be a brain drain scenario from India.

Initially there was a trend that Indian students focused on countries like United Kingdom and United States of America to pursue higher studies, however, with time and opportunities from the European Union (EU), the gates are open for students around the globe to realize their dream of getting the best education available on this planet.

The concern lies with the infrastructure in India as even the prestigious IIT’s and IIM’s fail to satisfy the need of a good college in terms of exposure to the real world. The mindset that a degree from a foreign university will help them achieve a better job seems to be another problem that the Indian colleges face.

One of the other reasons for this step by Indian students is the easily available counselling that one can get anywhere. The easily available bank loans also act as a catalyst when it comes to deciding a career in India or abroad.
